This extensive renovation of a large 1930s semi-detached home in Bear Flat, Bath, has transformed the space into a vibrant, modern home with up-to-date living spaces that perfectly suit modern family life.
The renovation began with the removal of the chimney breast and a reconfiguration of the layout, creating a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining area that integrates with the living room. This transformation was made possible by the strategic use of exposed structural steelwork, a unique and impressive feature that adds an industrial chic touch to the home’s contemporary design.
The kitchen, now a hub for family gatherings and entertaining, was designed to maximise natural light and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The exposed structural steelwork, accented by the contemporary fixtures and finishes, further enhances the industrial chic aesthetic.
Beyond the kitchen, the renovation extended to the addition of an additional ground-floor shower room and a snug, both thoughtfully planned to enhance the home’s functionality and comfort. The first floor was also not overlooked, with the reconfigured services and stylish new first-floor bathroom, creating a more spacious shower area and improved layout.
The outcome of this extensive renovation is a fantastic modern home that embodies the client’s aspirations for style, comfort, and functionality. Lacey Architecture’s expertise has transformed this 1930s home into a haven that will undoubtedly serve the client’s needs for years to come.

“Having found Verity almost by chance, we soon became her biggest fans. She planned our house renovations with great skill and attention to detail and we were so impressed with the breadth of her knowledge. She guided us through the initial planning and design stages with expertise, enthusiasm and patience and came up with some amazing ideas and suggestions that we would never have thought of ourselves. She is very impressive, is an excellent listener and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her. We are so happy that we trusted our instincts and chose her to help with this project.”
