Viera Gray House Barnes - Remodelling
Role: Architect, Principal Designer, Project Manager
Scope: Design, Production and Contract Administration
Value: Circa 300K
Following incorporation into the client’s growing portfolio of residential care homes, the need to improve the rather mean and dated entrance and reception of Viera Gray House was realised by OWLA. A redundant staff flat at first floor also offered the opportunity to create additional residential space. A key challenge was the transformation of an existing unattractive light well and a very low ceiling above the entrance to the home. The former was ‘glammed up’ and a new extension added to the front with improved ceiling height and sliding doors leading to a new reception and administrative area.
