After years of developing properties for his clients, interior designer Oliver Heath was looking forward to testing out his design skills on his first house. Oliver’s new townhouse was a compact three-bed, which had been rented out to students for more than 10 years.
In a small townhouse like this, it is important to make the space work harder. Planning permission was needed for a glass balcony that extends out from the kitchen, creating a second outdoor space and Oliver increased the size of the ground floor patio door to let in more natural light.
