A French provincial style house was the brief but as a renovation rather than a brand new house. The works involved keeping much of the existing structure and adding to the house whilst being mindful of the aesthetic proportions which are important to the French provincial style.

Owing to the considerations regarding the facade treatment and the details of the decorative moulding, a detailed research was conducted to investigate the proportions of mouldings in the French provincial style. As designers it was a history lesson and also a chance to learn more about a specific architectural style.

Like many clients, whilst wanting a classical look and feel to their home, our clients also had a desire to have modern, open internal spaces in juxtaposition to the traditional architectural style. Therefore, the rear of the building was used for a flexible kitchen, dining and living area whilst the window placements were carefully considered in order to create the desired style.

This project is a great example of Sydesign’s flexibility and skill in design which allows our team to collaborate closely with all clients to provide a great design solution to their desired tastes and lifestyle choices.
