Victorian Refurbishment – Roath Park, CardiffBuilding, Renovation, Kitchen & Bespoke Media Wall.
What Project One did:
Internal and External building works, Renovation and Interior Design
Where: Roath Park
What Project One said:
Kitchen: We designed, installed and specified all areas of the kitchen. The clients priority was keeping the geometric tiled flooring but convert the space for modern family living that reflected their own unique style. We designed the space around the floor in light grey tones. We specified a traditional style shaker style grey kitchen and painted the walls in European White to blend into the cabinets. For an injection of colour that compliments the reception room floor adjacent to the kitchen we added a bespoke high gloss splash back in spiced tangerine. To update the look we installed modern appliances and blended the black Blanco double sink into the worktop. As it was originally a very dark space we installed french doors leading onto the patio area and added new windows. We finished this with a Project One touch and created a larder space with matching oak doors and custom oak window sills and shelving.
Reception Room: The customer wanted this space as a family meeting point as it previously unused so we designed and built a bespoke media wall and opened up the wall to install large format glass to give light. As the family enjoy reading, music and TV and have an extensive album collection we designed the media wall to incorporate all of those elements. The customer wanted to keep was the original Victorian tiled flooring which is a beautiful feature and an artwork itself so we restored the tiles to their former beauty . We continued using European White colouring blending the walls and media wall so the floor would become the main feature. The customers artwork and vintage furniture pieces also compliment the wall tone and floor. As well as restoring the flooring we also restored the original fireplace exposing beautiful emerald green tiles and had it stripped then painted black to stand out against the grey walls. The doorbell was another original feature that still worked so we striped it back to the wood and chased the cables into the wall. This project was a real challenge with the usual host of Victorian surprises. In line with Project One’s ethos of taking care of a project from start to completion we took care of all the mould and damp issues.
Joinery: We wanted the joinery to have continuity in the design with the rest of the house so we custom made the skirting to match the existing house but worked to create a beautiful new mould for the reception room and kitchen area so the design was unique to the house and space. We finished it of with matching bespoke architrave and put in internal oak and glazed doors.
Consevatory: Due to the lack of space in the kitchen we rebuilt the small conservatory at the side of the house to house the washing machine and to function as a small utility room. We continued the same colours and materials as in the rest of the house.
Garden: The client had a good idea of the layout they required so Project One set out to give them exactly what they wanted. We gave it that Project One finish by using the natural material with great installation.
What the customer said: We had previously used Project One as a test run for the larger project we had planned. We shopped around several company’s but were won over by the teams dedication during the quoting and design phase which was always made a fun and rewarding experience in itself. They really got what we wanted to achieve and with their direction and expertise we surpassed our dreams for the space. It is amazing how a few changes to a building can transform your way of life. Project One has created a lifestyle for us and for that i will always be appreciative. Our warmest thanks to whole team for changing our lives. Mark and Geraldine Barry
