LOCATION Ardingly, Sussex
SIZE 50 sqm
DESIGNED IN 2015
Will was approached by Betty TV to team up with George
Clarke in Episode 4 of the Channel 4 series, Ugly House to
aLL Design and Alsop worked with Tammy and Stuart to redesign
their outdated bungalow. Whatever charm the property might have had
had been wiped out over the years by a series of ill-conceived
extensions and cosmetic updates which left the main living rooms
completely starved of light.
Will designs a dramatic barrel vault roof extension to the rear
of the bungalow with bespoke exposed curved beams, a shiny
aluminium roof and four porthole windows. The design differs to the
surrounding properties and it uses materials ordinarily seen in
large-scale industrial buildings, adapting these to a small-scale
and detailed specification.
The interior has an industrial feel; metallic finishes and large
bi-fold doors with views out to the garden. The kitchen units are
free-standing, the lighting subtle and seating areas varied.
