brightening the stairway

Transforming tired spaces into vibrant ones is a particular passion here at archangels ARCHITECTS. In this series of before and after shots, we illustrate how we transformed a quirky Edwardian terraced house, simply by creating a welcoming and bright entrance hallway and stairwell. Our intervention inspired the owner to undertake further modernising elements to the property, as he was able to view his home with fresh eyes.

Sometimes the smallest interventions are the most effective. The before and after shots below say it all.
