This was an interesting project, not least because all meetings had to be done remotely by Skype, telephone or email and the property can only be accessed via a 800mm wide alleyway.
The property is a typical narrow and tall coastal townhouse of the period, set over three floors, with numerous stairs and cozy spaces.
Our brief was classic, country chic with a very subtle hint at its sea-faring heritage.
The internal space was remodeled, moving the living areas onto the floor above to benefit from incredible views of St Hilda’s Abbey across the Whitby roofline.
The small rooms were opened up to give a feeling of spaciousness and a wc/washbasin was added in a former cupboard to provide ensuite accommodation on the attic floor.
