A Victorian house that needed general renovation and expansion.
The project included planning, construction and general renovation and, of course, the design and styling of the entire house. The family, numbering 5 people, asked for a bright and modern house that would contain work areas, a utility room and an open space that includes a large kitchen, dining area and family corner.
In a joint decision with the customers, we have preserved some of the original features of the house like the tiles floor in the entrance and the cornice works in the ceiling which preserves the Victorian charm and creates an interesting combination of old and new.
Fortis Green House
The fortis-Green project is a five-bedroom semi-detached house extending to the loft and back garden. The work included creating an ample open plan for a TV area, kitchen and dining area, but with smaller and more intimate spaces for sitting and playing, total renovation of the entire house, design and styling. The style is mid-century combined with South African nature elements with earthy colours. Some of the original wooden features of the house were restored, and with the suitable finishes, new furniture, textile, handpicked wall art and accessories, a feeling of warmth and nature was achieved throughout the house.
"We were so pleased that our builders recommended Tamar to us and only wish we'd met her before our project started! Despite starting relatively late in the project, Tamara's support, advice and creative flair was invaluable. She listened carefully to all of our thoughts and wishes and worked closely with us to make sure we achieved the result we were hoping for. She has strong partnerships with local suppliers which made sourcing the finishing touches seamless and hassle-free. With a strict eye for detail, she oversaw these finishing stages impeccably."
