Brothers Dan and Michael, from C BROS JOINERY and C BROS CONSTRUCTION, have completed two urban residential properties, considerately pushing through elegant design with family friendly construction.
The guiding philosophy of the brother’s construction practice, is to revive cramped urban living conditions into adaptable family living spaces, filled with light, space, and sleek storage solutions.
Experts in basement conversions, the brothers are uniquely placed to execute seamless designer living, that allows these new areas to feel part of the natural flow of a home, rather than being ‘add on’ living spaces.
“We work to the highest standards, to create a renewed lease of family life through contemporary construction, architecture and interior design. For our clients, creating space is paramount, alongside a premise to maintain key original architectural features, including exterior facades, windows, staircases and fireplaces. It’s these details that enable the realisation of beautiful contemporary living environments” – Michael Cretu

Balham & Hay House Developments

The construction works on these two stunning Victorian properties, have cleverly focused on re-imagining their existing ground-floor living space including outdoor areas, whilst maintaining unique period features. C Bros have successfully created illustrative examples, of their design and construction philosophy.



Designer detailing

The two 5 bedroom Victorian terraced homes, now include additional basement and kitchen-living areas, including stunning bespoke crittall doors, cinema rooms, light-wells, work areas, laundry rooms, dressing chambers, leisure and entertaining spaces.

A feeling of intimacy has been achieved through clever architectural features allowing discreet intimate corners and areas. The new spaces empower their clients to enjoy practical minimalist living. Everything in these homes have an ‘easy to find’ place, perfect for busy family life.

Material choices

A rich composition of materials across both properties have been used throughout the construction process and have been uniquely created in the C Bros Joinery workshop.

Material choices include the use of Carrara marble, concrete, brass, copper and steel metal detailing, combined with leather, solid woods and exquisite chevron flooring, creating timeless beautiful living.

Designer space

The interior detailing perfectly complements the original Victorian features, cleverly illuminated by contemporary designer lighting including Bert Frank and Kaia lighting.

Lavishly arranged with bespoke, designer and antique pieces, the interiors present perfect all-day living spaces, that easily transition into evening entertaining and celebrations.
