House in the Meadows

Location: Cambridge

Type: Domestic

Budget: Undisclosed

Date: Completed July 2016

The project entailed the renovation and substantial extension of an Arts and Crafts house in Cambridge.

 

The clients purchased a 3 bed semi-detached house in poor condition and tasked Mike Tuck Studio with renovating and extending the property into a 5 bedroom family home looking over the Grantchester Meadows. 

The client's passion for cooking played an important part in the brief and led to the creation of a large kitchen and dining room which links to a playroom. 

The constrained floor-to-ceiling heights of the 1950s house led to some novel structural solutions to increase the height in the large family space. 

We worked closely with the Cambridge-based client to include them in every stage of the design process.
