I would work closely with you to design a scheme that suits you whether that be:

  • a new building

  • an extension

  • full refurbishment and remodelling

  • a loft or garage conversion

  • removing walls

  • a new kitchen or bathroom

...or any other architectural design project. 

"Lorna has been great at listening to our many needs and giving us various different options for designing an extension to our home. Would definitely recommend."

Extension and full renovation


To transform a great house into a long-term family home.


This deceptively large home, although lovely, had a layout that did not suit the family’s life style. Adding a single storey rear extension open to a newly combined kitchen and dining space, has given the much-needed family orientated space. Large bifold doors and rooflights flood the new space with light and provide a visual and physical connection to the garden – perfect for young children.  

By optimising the layout with simple effective changes an office was added to the ground floor and on the first floor adjusting the bathroom layout allowed the addition of built-in wardrobes to one of the smaller bedrooms. Taking this opportunity to renovate the rest of the house at the same time with a full electrical rewire, new heating system and new decorative finishes throughout, have made this a perfect family home that will suit them for many years to come.

Garage conversion and house renovation


To create a modern family home with more social space, from this tired house.


Virtually untouched since it was originally built in the 1980’s this house needed modernising to suit 21st century family life. Whilst extending was an option, it was decided a better use of the budget was to convert the unused garage and remove the internal wall to the adjoining existing small kitchen, so a large open plan kitchen diner could be created.  This provides the additional space required to compliment the already large living room and support a growing family.


A new bathroom suite replaces the original dated one with upgrades to the electrics, a new heating system and new finishes throughout completing the renovation.

Remodel and full refurbishment


A truly transformative remodel to create a practical family home.


Having not been modernised for more than three decades this semi-detached house needed a full renovation to unlock its true potential. Beginning by removing the internal wall between the small kitchen and dining room as well as the external toilet, space was made to create a large open plan kitchen diner with feature fire place. Now directly connected to the garden with French doors, this new modern space is big enough for a family dining table enabling the existing separate dining room to be transformed in to a treasured playroom.


The rest of the house was stripped back and fully renovated with a full electrical rewire, new heating system, new bathroom and redecorated throughout. This in-depth renovation breathed new life in to a tired house transforming it into a practical attractive family home.

Full house refurbishment


Update the property to meet current standards to create an attractive home suitable for rental.


As an investment project the challenge was to create a practical, attractive home on a budget that would maximise returns. To meet current building and landlord legislation the works included a full rewire as well as internal insulation to the external walls to improve the EPC rating from an E to a C. 

A contemporary practical kitchen was fitted with French doors introduced to provide a direct link to the garden. The outdated first floor bathroom was gutted and after the external walls were insulated and retiled, it was refitted with a modern suite. Being decorated with robust homely finishes completes this renovation.

New Kitchen and refurbishment


To create a stylish first home with entertaining space.


This first floor flat had great potential but was dated. On a tight budget the flat was modernised with a new kitchen creating the desired entertaining space.  Built in storage was added to the second bedroom by utilising the space over the stairs, transforming this small room in to a more practical bedroom.


A full rewire, new heating system and decorating throughout completed the transformation of this flat in to a home.

Feasibility Study

This family of six had outgrown their much-loved home but not wanting to move are considering how to extend to get the space they need. They required a fifth bedroom, home office, laundry and larger dining area. To evaluate the potential options of extending a feasibility study was undertaken. The study considered four ways of increasing the size of the house; from single storey and two storey rear extensions to a loft conversion.

This process has enabled the family to fully consider the potential options and move forward knowing the project they are going to pursue will meet all of their needs.
