La Rue de la Monnaie, Trinity
The small family house was built in the 1960s with its elegant and rather delicate South facing conservatory. Sadly the conservatory had reached the end of its useful life, having suffered degradation of timber structural members as a result of condensation forming on the inside of single glazing. The decision was made to replace it with a ” four seasons ” room, insulated and heated. The new room still benefits from the Southerly orientation and has large windows to bring sunshine deep into the space and a raised terrace onto which sliding patio doors give access. Cross ventilation is achieved with opening windows on the East and West whilst high level and roof windows ensure that the space is filled with light, filtered through the branches and leaves of surrounding trees, thus preventing overheating in summer.
The main body of the house has been refurbished and brought up to modern standards of servicing and insulation, making it a comfortable and desirable home.

To all our clients, colleagues and friends
These are unpreceded times and the ramifications are changing at a rapid rate.
We are already working from home and luckily, we have the technology to operate as normal remotely.
We are currently continuing with our existing projects.
The planning and building departments are still active but in a limited way.
We are staying positive and believe we will come out on the other side stronger.
So, if anyone has an idea or a long held back project,
now could be the time to dust it off or just to touch base and get in touch.
Stay well and safe
From all at a-bcf.
