The project encompassed a comprehensive overhaul of both the interior and exterior of the property. A significant double-storey extension was added, amplifying the space and modernizing the structure. The challenge was not merely to renovate but to utterly transform the property, ensuring it aligns with the contemporary preferences of a family while maintaining timeless elegance.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]The clients envisioned a family abode that exuded relaxation and style, a place where they could create enduring memories. It was crucial to infuse character into the property and achieve a seamless harmony between the interior and the exterior, embodying a sense of timeless sophistication.

One of the most notable transformations was seen in the facade of the house. What was once a dated 1970’s exterior has been entirely rejuvenated into a beautiful facade, giving no hint of its original appearance. The master suite stands as a testament to the meticulous design and attention to detail that characterized the entire project.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”61527″ img_size=”full” css_animation=”fadeInRight”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”61528″ img_size=”full” css_animation=”fadeInLeft”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]An essential aspect of the design was to ensure that it caters to the evolving needs of the family, particularly with young children. The layout and aesthetics strike a delicate balance between contemporary elements and timeless designs, making it adaptable as the children grow and seek more privacy.

Claire Totman Designs Ltd has not only revived a dated property but has also crafted a living space that perfectly melds elegance, character, and contemporary design. The residence now seamlessly integrates with its environment, offering a renewed lease of life, promising years of joy and comfort for the family.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”fadeInUp”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]Location: Esher, United Kingdom[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]Interior Designer: Claire Totman Designs Ltd[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]Architect: Claire Totman Designs Ltd[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInDown”]Photography: Sarah Griggs[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle”][vc_column][vc_column_text]Claire Totman Designs Ltd has been shortlisted for the Residential Market Value £1-2.5 Million Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle”][vc_column][vc_media_grid element_width=”2″ gap=”35″ item=”mediaGrid_SimpleOverlay” grid_id=”vc_gid:1695122441941-750a7827-e139-4″ include=”61526,61530,61528,61527,61529″ css=”.vc_custom_1695122316636{padding-left: 20px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”60974″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]design et al only work with the world’s leading companies in the International Design & Architecture industry.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]If you think you have what it takes to compete in The International Design & Architecture Awards, submit your application by following the links below:[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Request The Application Form” style=”3d” color=”inverse” align=”center” css_animation=”fadeInUp” link=”url:mailto%3Aawards%40design-et-al.com%3Fsubject%3DThe%20Application%20Form%20-%20The%20International%20Design%20%2526%20Architecture%20Awards%202024%20TDA”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Use the links below for more information about the Awards:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” css_animation=”fadeInDown”][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_btn title=”The Categories” style=”3d” color=”inverse” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedesignawards.co.uk%2Finternational-design-architecture-awards%2Fcategories%2F|target:_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_btn title=”The PR & Editorial” style=”3d” color=”inverse” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedesignawards.co.uk%2Finternational-design-architecture-awards%2Fpr-publications%2F|target:_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_btn title=”The Awards Ceremony” style=”3d” color=”inverse” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedesignawards.co.uk%2Finternational-design-architecture-awards%2Fawards-ceremony%2F|target:_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_btn title=”Testimonials” style=”3d” color=”inverse” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedesignawards.co.uk%2Finternational-design-architecture-awards%2Ftestimonials%2F|target:_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024
