'Two into one does go' 

This project involved restoring a large listed mansion in Southwold from two houses back into a single home. The work included extensive historic building repairs including repairs to stonework and historic ironwork, as well as modern interventions.

 

Key features

  • Creation of a comfortable home
  • Contemporary alterations to historic building
  • Traditional repair techniques

Inkpen Downie removed a redundant modern stairway in order to recreate the fine entrance hall and landings that had been a feature of the original house.

A new pair of columns to Palladio's proportional system were placed in the entrance hall to do justice to the splendour of the house.

A new double helix glass staircase was installed giving on to the roof terrace through a structural glass motorised roof opening. This allowed full enjoyment of the spectacular views available over Southwold.
