HOMES PROMOTION


A stunning, innovative vision of space


With a raft of innovative ideas and a fantastic Lofts and Extensions (L&E) building team, Ricardo and Irina Pollastri have achieved their vision of a stunning contemporary space.


The Pollastris knew their Kingston home had the scope to create something special and started the search for a building company eighteen months before the project began. Ricardo read about L&E in a local magazine and arranged a meeting to chat through possible concepts. “I’m an engineer and a very details orientated person,” explains Ricardo. “We spent a long time planning and researching exactly what we wanted. We were looking for something striking and contemporary to contrast with the old part of the property and we didn’t want to cut corners or compromise.” The vision was to create large open-plan room with clean lines and no exposed steels, whilst maintaining ceiling height to maximise the feeling of space. “I prepared a very detailed specification of the build, including things like no visible guttering on the exterior of the back of the property: everything had to be concealed to maintain the clean lines,” says Ricardo.


A building team using a one-size fits all approach were never going to appeal to the Pollastris with the many innovations that were incorporated into their plans. It was the creativity and positive attitude of the L&E surveyor and building team that appealed to the couple.
