coombe estate, kingston
2006 – 2009
This family home was constructed in the late 90’s and suffered from poor daylighting, and inefficient plan layout design. On an extremely tight budget, Hoban Design oversaw the transformation of the house with strategic interventions, refurbishment of existing spaces and re-landscaping the external spaces.
As a result, the family home was substantially upgraded bringing daylight into the open plan kitchen/breakfast room and direct connections to the mature gardens. The basement was converted to accommodate a cinema room and additional guest bedroom suite The main entrance hallway was transformed and opened up as a double height space. Externally strategic external lighting accented the mature planting arrangements and created an exciting approach across the varying gradients of the site
