The Class of 2020 - Projects that have been finished and photographed
London These projects are all listed buildings in Bedford Park, West London.
Full House refurbishment with conversion of loft space into living space together with redesign of existing extension and layout. Alice Poole Architects designed all the fitted furniture.
Replacement of an unsatisfactory glass box with a new extension designed as a modern take on an orangery, together with re-planning and alterations to the lower ground floor, including a new kitchen and new joinery, all designed by Alice Poole.
Full house refurbishment and extensions with alterations. This house had small rooms blocking views of the garden from the kitchen and the rooms on the ground floor did not allow any flow resulting is the house feeling smaller than it was. Alice Poole redesigned the space by adding small extensions to link the spaces and open up the back of the ground floor onto the garden. Alice Poole designed all the fitted furniture including a double aspect niche display unit in the living room.
Full house refurbishment and alterations including a new side infill extension to open up and extend the kitchen bringing in as much light as possible. Split levels presented a challenge in giving a flow round the ground floor.
This project was submitted for the Architectural Designer of the Year Award 2020 and is also a finalist in 2021. The project involved the total refurbishment of a house that had previously been converted into 5 flats and extended in an unsympathetic manner. Alice Poole completely redesigned and replanned the property, added a studio extension to be used as a kitchen/dining area and relocated the main entrance, as well as carrying out a total refurbishment.
Many clients are embracing colour and pattern, with wallpaper, curtains and pendants lights seeing a resurgence. This is also giving us the chance to incorporate our signature stained glass to give the special individual touch to our projects. We always work with our clients to achieve solutions and designs that suit their individual personalities and preferences but also present our own ideas to those who prefer us to give a full design solution.
Alice Poole Architects continued to win Awards throughout 2020.
We were finalists in 3 categories of the National Building and Construction Awards 2020: Architectural Designer of the Year, Architect of the Year (Small Project), and the Women in Construction Award. However, due to Covid restrictions, the Awards ceremony has now been delayed several times and is now carried through to 2021.
2020 – retrospective view
2020 was a challenging year for everyone but, as we are part of the construction industry, we were able to continue working on our projects throughout 2020 despite the difficulties imposed by lockdowns which inevitably affected supplies and progress of projects on site.
