Bow House

AFL Build as Architects

AFL Build was appointed to carry out the refurbishment and extension of a Grade II listed Georgian house in Bow. The house was in a dilapidated condition and required a full scale renovation. The finishes range from lime plaster walls, to handmade tiles and refurbished timber floors.

Our clients purchased a five storey, mid-terrace Georgian townhouse, which had been split into two flats and was in a poor condition. We were contracted to sensitively restore the historical details throughout the property, as well as add a small extension at the rear of the lower ground floor to form a new family room.

We were tasked with creating a comfortable and welcoming family home. The brief included celebrating the original details, including original floorboards and cornices, and replacing ceiling roses where these had been damaged or removed. A combination of finishes throughout, including lime plaster and handmade tiles, create a palette of natural tones.
