"really happy with those doors".
says homeowner Lauren

 

The Property:

An Edwardian home in Golders Green, North London. Featured on George Clarke's Old House New Home on Channel 4 broadcast in November 2018. George described it as a huge Edwardian home with an identity crisis.

Watch the 90 second programme highlights in the video above or watch the full episode on the Channel 4 website here.

The Requirement:

The owners Chris & Lauren inherited the house pretty much in the same style as when the previous owners moved in in the 1980's.

They now wanted the space to work for a growing family for the next 30 to 40 years.

The biggest challenge in this family home was uniting the two downstairs extensions each with a different roofline, they housed the 70's utility room, 1980's kitchen and long dark dining area.

The Solution:

Chris & Lauren already had planning permission to replace the two extensions with one full width.

George suggested opening up the downstairs space with an open plan kitchen, living, dining area.

Three industrial style metal framed doors were recommended by George to be sourced from Marlin Windows Alitherm Heritage Aluminium Door range.

The Reaction:

"Beautiful doors" says George
"Really happy with those doors" says homeowner Lauren

Full video transcript

George: The biggest challenge in this family home was uniting the two downstairs extensions each with a different roofline, they housed the 70's utility room, 1980's kitchen and long dark dining area.

And this is your new kitchen dining room

Chris & Lauren: Wow

George: I'm delighted that Chris and Lauren took my advice and knocked down the walls to create one large open plan space.

My big ideas for the downstairs were to put in three full height metal framed doors and two generous skylights above the kitchen island and dining area, flooding the space with light.

And what a kitchen

Chris: yeah

George: What an island unit, look at the size of it. And what a place to stand, you can look up and see the sky

Chris: yeah

George: You look back all the way through your hallway and see through the glazed doors, just opens up the whole space

and look left through those beautiful doors out on to the garden

Lauren: Really happy with those doors actually

Chris: yeah

George: and onto your dining area

This area breaks down into 3 distinct zones, kitchen, dining and living room. And it's great to see the iconic Chesterfield sofa commanding the space.
