ABOUT THE PROJECT
Project name: The Homewood
Address: Portsmouth Rd, Esher KT10 9JL
The Joinery participated in the conservation of the modern movement
the house occupied by Mr Patrick Gwynne, the Architect for the construction
in 1938 and the owner/occupier since 1942.
In 2001 FJL worked from the original drawings and pictures to rebuild the
fitted furniture, and reconstructing the master bedroom to its original
1930’s design, among other items.
Although the specification was varied, the project included birch ply panels
and tambour door wardrobes that acted as room dividers.
Patrick Gwynne hand selected the veneers to match the original joinery that had been removed in the years following the original sale.
