The Carlton Road project presented Spaced Out with a special challenge. Designing a home for a couple who each have their own design business. It was also a classic case of neatly slotting the new into the old.As found, the property was a dark Victorian Villa, filled with the remnants of its previous occupants, the inventors of the heated flying suit, later to become the Milliwatt Heated bed blanket.For over 50 years the house had been used by the same family as home, research labs, sample rooms and storage. It was also partially converted into two separate units with separate entrances and interconnecting staircases. Its original plan was barely recognisable.Now totally transformed by Spaced Out, the Victorian outer shell has been carefully restored, with subtle modifications, whilst the interior is a contemporary machine for living. Transformed by a fresh new scheme which has encouraged the penetration of daylight and air throughout the entire interior. Unlike the Victorian plan, the new layout allows for spaces to flow together, including a dramatic new double tiered terrace linking the main rooms on the ground floor seamlessly into the garden.
