The Manor House

Location: Wadebridge, Cornwall
Client: Private

The clients for the Manor House had a particular aesthetic they wanted to achieve: to maximise the amazing views of Cornish landscape, draw the family to garden, and dissolve boundaries between inside and out. The scheme was to build an extension as well as refurbish their historical house to modern family life while remaining sensitive to existing property.

We worked with an interior designer on an extensive interior design scheme which retained the historical character of the property while introducing fun, atmospheric, and characterful twists.  In addition, we improved the energy efficiency by insulating the existing property, enhancing airtightness and introducing renewable technologies such as ground source heat pumps, photovoltaics and solar thermal systems.
