Teddington, Greater London
PDF Project Profile
Span houses, in the 1960s, became at the time a radical variation to the terraced typology. These homes were characterised by mono pitched roofs, clerestory windows and open plan interiors. Eric Lyons and Geoffrey Townsend amongst other architects designed over 2000 homes around the country from infill sites to new small towns such as New Ash Green.
Fletcher Crane Architects have transformed a span house home in Holmesdale Road, Teddington into a contemporary restoration of an era home. Exposed ceiling rafters, polished concrete floors, bespoke staircase design, reeded glass, cork flooring and crafted plywood joinery units all help to build an overarching aesthetic. The three storey property is linked by a yellow feature wall running from ground to second floor. The schematics included a ground floor garage conversion and rearrangement of the kitchen, dining and living spaces in order to provide an extra study area and additional bedroom upstairs. Carefully selected lighting, mechanical fittings and bespoke windows and sliding doors come together forming a bold architectural identity. Our client has furnished the home with a collection of outstanding modernist furniture, carpets paintings and fittings.
