There many aspects of this Suffolk country house that didn’t work when we first started on it. A new corridor had to be constructed upstairs so one didn’t have to walk through a bedroom to get to the large bathroom at the end. This bathroom was divided into two as there were only three bathrooms to seven bedrooms. The loo downstairs was also relocated to a smaller unused room because it too was located in a large room with a lot of wasted space, we then converted it into a study. The most challenging space was the very long, quite wide and awkward kitchen. This was done by dividing it into 3 open spaces by adding pilasters with downstand beams in the middle kitchen area, adding an informal dining area on one end a generous circulation space on the other with access to the outside terrace.
