Performance upgrade for listed modernist house
Graham Handley Architects for private client
Contract value: undisclosed
Kingswillow House is a grade II listed 1938 modernist home designed by Dyson and Hebeler that was published in the architectural press at time. Its fabric required attention so in 2015 the clients approached Graham Handley Architects with the goal of upgrading its performance. Subsequent works included rebuilding the flat roofs to improve drainage and insulation, rebuilding and raising parapets and repairing brickwork and rendering. Specialist repairs to concrete drip details and canopies were undertaken. Other interventions included installation of underfloor heating and a new kitchen and bathrooms.
