Domestic Client, St Mawes
The focal point of this project was to design and construct a double garage with ancillary accommodation over, to be in keeping with the existing house in St. Mawes. The clients wished to enhance their existing property by ensuring that a sympathetic new build be constructed to compliment their home and provide the desired new facilities, a bed/sitting room and shower.
The project incorporated demolition of the existing unsympathetic annexe building and construction of a garage with a substantially lower floor level.
RTP were responsible for the sensitive design of the new build and technical elements of work for the demolition and new build specification. Liaison with the Planning and Building Control authorities enabled RTP Surveyors to successfully negotiate the relevant statutory permissions.
“We were pleased to receive assistance from Robert Carslaw, an interior designer friend who composed the original sketch of the garage, following discussion regarding our idea of demolishing the existing structure, digging out behind the house and putting in a double garage with a link to the house. Grenville’s interpretation of this sketch and the resulting finished garage has been very much admired by both villagers and visitors, all of whom feel that it is totally in keeping with the original house and will, in time, look as if it was built at the same time.”
