Designing Domestic Bliss – A Feature in ‘Essential Surrey’ publications

Earlier in 2023, Reigate Architects was selected to feature in the March editions of Essential Surrey’s titles: The Richmond, The Elmbridge, The Guildford, and The Surrey Downs magazines. One of our projects takes centre stage in an editorial aptly titled “Designing Domestic Bliss,” offering an engaging glimpse into our architectural abilities.

Situated in Reigate, Surrey, our Oak Way extension and alterations project stands as a testament to our skill in redefining spaces. The scheme focuses on restoring a sense of connection and providing a larger space to accommodate a single split-level kitchen/living room/dining and games area.

A Tribute to Early 20th Century Elegance
Drawing inspiration from the elegance of early 20th-century design, copper accents and Crittall-style windows and doors were introduced, lending a feel of timeless sophistication to the space. Complementing this, a brand-new parquet-style herringbone floor adds a sense of classic charm.

First Impressions are Important
The decision to enlarge the hall was not just a functional choice but a deliberate effort to elevate the initial impression upon entering the home. The result is a welcoming view that invites visitors with a feeling of openness, warmth, and luminosity.

The design creates a welcoming composition that encourages connection, relaxation, and the joy of everyday living. The layout invites you to move freely and enjoy the flow between the kitchen, living area, and dining space. Natural light floods the interior, providing the sense of airiness and tranquillity.

If you are planning to make adaptations to your current property or embark on a new home build, our experienced team is here to guide you through every step of the process. We understand that your home is your sanctuary, and we strive to create spaces that reflect your unique style and meet your practical needs.
