Refurbishment and extension of a Grade II* listed modernist house

This project involved the total restoration, alteration and extension of Willow House, a Grade II* listed modernist house. It is a significant pre-war house in the International Style, built in 1932. Designed by George Checkley, it is one of the earliest houses the UK to be influenced by the European Modern Movement.

The project restored the house and its grounds in sympathy with the original design, removing inappropriate additions and features, and addressing many of the constructional defects that had caused its rapid decay.

We returned to Willow House in 2012 to add a contemporary garden room extension set within the grounds. Read more on the » Willow House Garden Room project page
