Nelson Crescent

One of the delights of our job is the places we visit and so any excuse to go to Ramsgate to work on a house that evokes this ancient seaport is fine by us. Jane Austen often visited her brother Captain Austen here and you can imagine her walking along Nelson Crescent. She loved this…

Heathville Road

When we first visited this sensitively-designed end of terrace three-bedroom house by ZDA Architects we were struck by its midcentury meets Japanese feel. We fell in love with the way the light warmed up the wood and wanted to bring in designers inspired by Japan including Jens Quistgaard, Noguchi and Tapio Wirkkala.  Inside the house…
