Touchstone House

TW-2 Role: Design / Delivery Architects

Client: Private

Completion: Spring 2017

Location: Surrey

Touchstone House underwent a remarkable metamorphosis from a dated 2-storey 5-bedroom detached property situated within the Green Belt into a remarkable remodeling in collaboration with Rockwood Homes

The development included the demolition of all of the existing single-storey elements and the retention of the existing two-storey house. Two side extensions were built, a central front entrance gable and also a rear two-storey extension. The existing loft space was converted to provide additional accommodation and a detached garage to the front.

In a nod to sustainability and modernity, the structure was stripped back to its masonry external skin.¬† The property’s thermal performance was significantly improved by lining all the external walls with insulation, while the exterior was applied with a new pristine render finish.

This reimagination breathed new life into the erstwhile timeworn dwelling.
