Romsey Road by AR Design Studio Architects

Category: Houses Published on 09 Nov, 2012 Tags: , , , , , ,

Romsey Road is a luxurious 5 bedroom house refurbishment by AR Design Studio Architects in the city of Winchester, United Kingdom. Architects brief was to create a sense of space and calm in the tight and complicated layout. By extending at the rear on first floor designers replaced two single bedrooms with two master bedrooms with en suites, as well as liberating space to create a new double height dramatic entrance and stairs leading to a wide functional landing and a new family bathroom. The palette of materials used is limited and muted, white and grey render and tiles to make the experience of the house that of a calm play between spaces and light.

On the ground floor were doubled the kitchen and dining area to create a big open living space, this is fully glazed on to the external glass-covered patio. The concept was to create continuity between the two rooms by using the same floor material, flush thresholds and structural glass to cover the external patio. This ambiguous internal and external space creates vitality, in the tradition of modernist spaces like that of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona pavilion.
