Speedwell House

Walkington, East Riding of Yorkshire


A breathtaking extension & adaptation of an existing suburban family dwelling in Walkington, East Yorkshire. 

In most dwellings in the UK, disability of any kind is seen as a hindrance and seldom catered for. Speedwell house breaks with this abhorrent attitude placing the needs of the client at the heart of the building. Primary to this strategy were the installation of a covert lift negating the need for stairs, an adaptable kitchen layout with mobile island unit and a careful attention to the quality of light and texture of interior finishes throughout.
