When she approached Moon our client was in the process of re-locating from a Georgian townhouse in London to enjoy her retirement in Bristol. She had purchased a non-descript bungalow in Westbury Park with the view to reconfiguring this and adding a second floor to provide a modern, open plan home. Early on in the process it became apparent that it would be much better value to take down the bungalow and start again. With their proposals, Moon looked to create a modern, open plan house that opened up to the garden. Externally it was important that the building formed the transition between the run of 1½ storey 20th century houses to one side and the much grander two storey Victorian building to the other. Internally, the spaces flow together, and the clean modern interior provides a backdrop for the pieces furniture that the client had gathered over time.
