Project – Classic Car Showroom with Living and Recreational Accommodation – Essex, UK   

The design brief for this project was to provide a high spec showroom finish for the client’s classic car collection, together with living and recreational areas in addition to the adjacent family home.

As tis project was set in a conservation area, the aesthetics had to be in keeping with the existing house and surrounding area. This was achieved by traditional detailing and the use of brick, timber and slate materials.

This project is across three floors consisting of:

  • The basement which includes a swimming pool, sauna, gym area and two car showroom spaces.
  • The ground floor which includes an open plan getaway space with bi-fold doors leading to an external patio area and a further two car showroom spaces
  • The first floor provides an en-suite bedroom and small reading area overlooking the open plan space below.

All the accommodation is accessed from a centrally located custom designed steel and timber staircase. The basement showroom spaces are accessed via two car lifts which raise from the lower level when required and return to be fully integrated within the external paved area when not in use.
