Brief : A simple extension / day room – with a twist.
Its not every day you have a globally recognised artist approach you for a project. We needed to create the best achievable space, with lots of light and of course allow room on the walls for paintings.
The property had been previously extended so our first hurdle was dealing with floor levels as we had three different ones to contend with. The next was ensuring it sat well and sympathetically against the existing property. The result is a beautiful detailed orangery style room, with hand made joinery doors and windows, aluminium lanterns and brickwork matched to perfection. Although a tricky and time-consuming “box” the final space works brilliantly.
Tony Ryder is someone I would recommend without reservation. He has worked with us on several projects. Without exception they have gone smoothly, not only smoothly but on time, with constant communication and updates, with intelligent variation suggested where an adaptation might create improvement and he has been a constant pleasure to work with. I would also like to emphasise his exceptional design talent. Not only enterprising and imaginative, but working to the brief. I would trust him, to do any project for us. I would also trust his team. They have been efficient, prompt and very well-organised. They have all gone out of their way to make projects with us easy, stress-free and successful.
