Case Studies

Palmeira Square, Hove


For this project we renovated the large basement of a building in an iconic Grade II listed square in Hove. Some parts of the basement had never been lived in and the rest had been unoccupied for around 20 years. From this, we made a fabulous contemporary apartment with real wow factor.

What we did: Structurally altered the space in line with Listed Buildings consent, halted all damp through floors and walls, installed underfloor heating, new wiring and plumbing with home automation system controlling heating, hot water and CCTV, installed an innovative lighting scheme, replaced front entrance staircase and balustrade, added new front door and frame to match original. Fitted bathrooms and kitchen, bespoke wardrobes and built-in cabinetry throughout, new flooring throughout including reclaimed York stone, full decoration.

Clifton Hill, Brighton


Burroughs completed internal and external refurbishment to this incredible 5 bedroom house, located on one of Brighton’s most prestigious terraces, built in 1841.

We installed a new kitchen, utility room, bathrooms and games room, new wiring and plumbing, a TV and satellite data cabling and full CCTV system and underfloor heating.

We restored all of the internal woodwork and panelling as well as the exterior plaster stucco mouldings. Then we stabilised and repaired the entire front elevation, rebuilt the triple garage at the rear and, finally, performed a full redecoration throughout.

Music Studio, Hove


Our client wanted a space in his basement to play and record music as loudly as he wanted. Burroughs created this state of the art recording studio which has some of the best acoustics and Sussex, and has now hosted some of the rising stars of the British music scene.

This project involved: Stabilising structurally unsound elements, reconfiguring the layout of the basement, over 100m³ of heavy duty acoustic insulation and over 200 sheets of acoustic plasterboard to maximise soundproofing, installing soundproof doorways, walls and windows, new lighting and power circuits, replastering and decorating throughout, new floors and finally we built bespoke cabinetry and ten huge ‘bass traps’.

The Old Bakery, Brighton


This house at the end of a terrace was built in 1850 was once a bakery (see photo). The building had been unchanged for over 40 years, until the current owner asked us to undertake a full restoration. It is now a beautiful residential property.

Our work included: Installing a new natural slate roof, reinstating the bay window as per original design, re-rendering all exterior walls, new joinery throughout, new wiring, plumbing and plastering throughout, installing a new kitchen, installing two new bathrooms, restoring the balustrades, full interior redecoration and renovating the external courtyard.
