Hill House in the prestigious Penwortham district of Preston was originally designed by Sir George Grenfell Baines the founder of BDP.

FWP were approached by the present owners and were successfully selected following a design competition to produce a cutting edge minimal contemporary re-working and extension of this large detached dwelling which includes new kitchen, bedroom and an ingenious cantilevered swimming pool that projects out into the woodland garden beyond.

The property won the best redesigned house of the year category as voted for by the viewing public as part of Channel 4s Grand Designs series.
