We were asked to work on this Grade II Listed Edwardian house in Woking, Surrey. It was built in the early 1900s. We worked with Smallwood Architects who were brought in to undertake various refurbishments of the property for the new owner who wanted to reinstate some of the houses lost original features.
We designed, manufactured and installed a new portico for the front of the property. The original portico had been removed sometime before so there was nothing original left to work with.
The portico was a particularly challenging project due to its curved design, structure and the intricate detail required to replicate the original details on the cornice and the porticos exterior.
It was built as a full radius, 7 bands of hand carved mouldings decorated the fascia. It also featured a coffered ceiling with moulded panels adorned the inside. This all sat on hand turned columns and pilasters with hand carved capitals. The lead roof laid over wood rolls was finished with a prominent finial.
We also manufactured and installed new sliding sash windows and a concaved set of doors into the orangery. These were constructed using Accoya timber, chose for its durability and stability.
We restored a decorative external door casing, which required the paint to be completely removed. Once the paint was removed some stunning carving detail was exposed. After several elements were repaired it was reinstated. The process of this renovation extended its life expectancy for many years to come.
