Clapton House extension
We chose Sigrún to completely remodel our house and design our rear extension on the basis of her previous projects. I was particularly attracted by her total understanding of the family space. She has added some really beautiful details. The house really works and we love it.

We had a typical two-up, two-down Victorian terraced house, initially bought as an investment property. Ten years later, we found ourselves living in the same property and decided to extend it..
Sigrún’s plans were functional yet aesthetically stunning and had our instant buy-in. She was instrumental in getting the planning permission as we wanted to add one bedroom on the first floor and there was no such precedent in our conservation area.
She was skilful at managing the whole project and was pragmatic at finding solutions to any problems we encountered. She was always very generous with her time. Her experience also helped us tremendously in choosing the right colours and fixtures.
From having a tiny kitchen, we now have a spacious kitchen with a beautiful yellow-brick party wall and glass roof, and no matter what the weather outside, it always looks beautiful from our kitchen. My children have their individual bedrooms and our terraced house is a comfortable family home now. We are very happy in our extended house. All thanks to Sigrún, without whom none of this would have been possible.

Sigrún redesigned our ground floor – kitchen, dining and living room space. It was a big project and required a lot of imagination to open it up in a workable and aesthetically pleasing way. Sigrun more than achieved the brief. It was a fantastic transformation and we were, and continue to be delighted with the design.
She always listened to our views and concerns whilst gently steering us towards new ideas which opened up new possibilities. Not only has she a great eye for classy design, it is tuned into what needs to work practically in a family environment – the balance is perfect.
Sigrún is professional, assertive and polite and can handle builders when they don’t quite follow the brief! A brave woman. She also gave a lot of thought and time to choosing the right materials in terms of quality and aesthetics, and went beyond the call of duty in helping us get the right floor tiles.
I could not recommend Sigrún highly enough – she has designed a beautiful kitchen and living space for us.
