This Grade II listed house in Sandwich, Kent, is one that epitomises organic development. It is a house that has grown around itself rather like a snail.
Starting from an early 17C cottage core, it first expanded sideways in the 18C with a clever readjustment of the rear facade. In the 19C the hosue was then expanded towards the High Street with a formal symmetircal front facade, which in turn was modifed in the early 20C by modifying one of the frontrooms into a glass fronted shop.
Our job is to create a sense of connection and flow between the ground floor spaces for family life and entertaining, and for upstairs to reconfigure the bedroom and bathroom arrangements.
