Detached House on Broadway in Derby
The client had three initial requests: bridges, balconies and mezzanines. Swain Architecture was approached to create a light, bright and modern house with contemporary features including glass floors, high ceilings and multi functional spaces. The challenge was to create a spacious home on a small city centre plot, in one of Derby’s most desirable residential addresses.
Delivering a New Home for a Growing Family
A Flexible Family Home
Broadway was designed with the ultimate adaptability in mind. A home that works as well for entertaining as it would for a growing family. With flexibility at the forefront of the design, multi-functional rooms and spaces were created, with an option for up to five bedrooms in the future.
The Benefits of a Bespoke Design
Open Plan Living
An extensive open plan kitchen and living area is situated on the first floor, creating a sense of space with double-height ceilings and large, south-facing windows. Among the many surprises this main living space has a feature glass floor looking down the snug and garden below.
Materials, such as the slate roof, were selected to create a more traditional exterior. Materials were selected to be in keeping with the location: a leafy street with a number of Victorian redbrick houses.
