Downsizing to the city

View of house from Street

This design for a townhouse and studio on a constrained site in Norwich is for a couple who wish to downsize from a country farmhouse. 

As for many downsizers, the type of two or three bedroom housing predominantly available in Norwich is unsuitable for their needs, as they often have a cramped kitchen, small reception rooms, no garden, no potential workshop/studio space and no private parking. In this design, we have been able to satisfy all of these requirements, whilst also considering potential adaptations that might be necessary in the future as the couple enter their old age.

We anticipate more downsizing projects as couples whose grown up children have left home choose to build custom houses that truly suit their needs.
