Childs+Sulzmann received a commission which provided an interesting challenge where our expertise could unlock an opportunity for a valued client and produce a very special home for her and her family.

The brief was to create a generous 5-bedroom house on a narrow sloping site on one of the most desirable residential roads in Cardiff. The access was challenging, the neighbours sensitive and the local architecture conservative.

We worked with the client to maximise the opportunity on the site and to explore a language of modern materials, whilst ensuring that this would sit comfortably in the context.

With some ingenuity and a degree of persistence planning consent was granted for a very contemporary solution featuring dramatic glazing, a striking copper façade and cantilevered bay windows.

Both natural and man-made materials, including granite, polished concrete and tiling, were used for internal finishes to complete this exclusive, high-spec, contemporary home with which the client is delighted and the neighbours are also happy.
