The Design Daily: Radical Redesign of a Victorian Terrace House

Share with

In today’s post, I’m excited to share a radical redesign project for a traditional two-up, two-down Victorian terrace house. This transformation involves completely gutting the interior—removing the floors, roof, and most of the walls—to create an open-plan, double-height space that’s perfect for modern living.

The idea behind this redesign is to maximize light, volume, and air, creating a spacious and airy environment that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The new layout features large glass doors that open up to the garden, flooding the space with natural light and providing great views.

Starting with a blank canvas, the ground floor is reimagined to include a high-ceilinged living area with a wall of glass at the back. The kitchen is positioned towards the rear, with sleek, modern units and ample storage. By removing the traditional extension and integrating a three-meter addition at the back, the space feels expansive and connected to the outdoors.

One of the standout features of this redesign is the gallery space with a small office. This upper-level area overlooks the living space, creating a sense of openness and continuity. It’s an ideal spot for a home office, reading nook, or even a play area for kids.

Upstairs, the redesign continues with the removal of internal walls to create larger, more versatile rooms. The bathroom is repositioned for better flow, and a roof terrace is added to offer a private outdoor retreat with stunning views.

This project shows how bold, creative thinking can transform even the most traditional spaces into modern masterpieces. If you’re considering a similar renovation and want more detailed insights, check out my extended video, where I delve into the design process and budgeting.
