Claire House

York, North Yorkshire

Dwelling renovation

Construction

 

The practice was appointed as a consultant for the re-development and renovation of a period dwelling, set among the centre of the historic city of York.

The project has required the development of a close working relationship with the client and an understanding of how to realise the potential of the property and release the most value from the construction budget available.

Architecturally, the aspiration has been to understand which elements of the existing house are critical to maintaining and reinforcing the character of the house and allowing its history to be read, alongside its contemporary renovation.
