Poppy’s House

Northern Edge Studio

This restoration of a 1960s home was an exercise in restraint and reimagining of contemporary living in a modernist home.
Northern Edge Studio approached this project with sensitivity and sustainability in mind, aiming to keep as much of the home’s original character while updating it to withstand the sands of time. Sustainably sourced oak ceilings and eco-friendly cork floors were installed, along with energy efficient heating and lighting. Improved windows were installed and a new colour palette of white and light green was added to create an inviting aesthetic. Additional features include a heating cooling system with heat pumps, acoustic EchoPanel walls, and earthwool insulation for the roof and walls.
Working with builders and engineers, Northern Edge Studio, established a scope of works that addressed the main concerns, while keeping tje special features of this unique home. This adaptive reuse of an original mid-century modern home allowed for a design that treasured the historical significance of the build while upgrading it for a new modern lifestyle.
