Meet Richard, the Lead Designer

Architectural Design

Richard Morgan

"My client stated that their preferred style was Scandinavian, but with a British eccentricity, so I had to bear this in mind when designing their plans. They preferred liveable minimalism, things that function. They wanted to extend 6 metres to the rear to create a larger kitchen and dining space for their family. They also expressed the need for somewhere unexposed for their washer and dryer to be stored."

Project details

The design theme of this flat was quirky and unique, a style that's not what you'd expect when you walk through the door... this needed to be continued on into the new extension in order to create a natural flow. Because of Resi's extensive knowledge and experience in home improvement, we were able to create a design that did exactly that.

Solution

I created a plan that aligned with their preferred internal style, whilst being practical and easy to understand. At the rear of the house, a spacious kitchen and dining area was designed, with a glass window box - a feature that was very in keeping with this family’s style. To allow the maximum amount of light into the property, I added two large skylights to the kitchen, and double doors that opened up onto an internal courtyard in the new third bedroom.
