Buttersteep House, Ascot
32 Design were asked to completely re-design the interior spaces of the house and extend the property as far as possible in order to include a caretaker’s apartment. In addition to the gym and swimming pool, a home cinema room was to be created. Although the house stands in extensive grounds, due to planning restrictions of the ‘Green Belt’ area, obtaining permission for further extensions required careful negotiations. We achieved planning permission for all the works required by the client.
- Additional second floor and dormer windows over the main building.
- Ground floor extension.
We undertook complete renovation and refurbishment of the interior: re-designing all seven bathrooms, the kitchen/diner area, re-designing the entrance hall to allow for improved stair placement as well as the stair design itself. Selected fittings including the lounge bar and bedroom wardrobes were bespoke, designed by 32 Design.
Internal alterations were made to create a home cinema with 3D projector and concealed sound system. The project included full renewal of the mechanical and electrical installations, including new A/C system and renewable energy, fully designed audio visual installation including lighting, heating, A/C and sound system control and a sophisticated security system.
