FiftyPointEight opt for Stovax Vogue in stunning renovation of 1980s house
December 18, 2018
When Bronwen asked her brother, Angus, to help her overhaul a dated 1980’s house into a spacious home for her and her sons, he was thrilled to be able to help. We spoke to architect, Angus, from FiftyPointEight, to find out more about the project, and why they chose a Stovax Vogue.
Tell us a bit about the project.
With a cramped ground floor layout, tired conservatory to the rear and an untidy overgrown garden, the brief was clear: to create an open plan living space on the ground floor. I could also see great potential in maximising views across the South & Malling Down to the castle beyond.
At FiftyPointEight, we have worked with a firm called Pascoe Interiors on a number of projects over the years, including the design and supply of my own kitchen. Bronwen was impressed with the design, layout and quality of units, so did not consider any other option than to choose both companies in collaboration.
The challenge with this kitchen was twofold. Firstly, there was a strict budget to stick to, and secondly the space was challenging for all that we had to include within the kitchen – which included the boiler and washing machine, along with all you would expect in a modern family kitchen. The design was also to include an island and a run of units within the newly created open plan living room space.
What were the heating requirements?
Bronwen was very keen to have a wood burning stove having had one in her previous house, and really liked it. We were satisfied that with a mid-terrace and new loft conversion, heat loss would be minimal, so therefore even a relatively small stove would generate a fair amount of heat for the house when the heating wasn’t switched on – as well as providing supplementary heating on really cold days.
What led you to a Stovax product?
What are your plans for the future?
Collaborations open up not only a plethora of opportunities for both companies, but our shared clients benefit from the support of a wider team who have a proven and ongoing success together. Together we offer our clients a broader range of professional experience and knowledge to guide them through their Projects.
While the focus has been on kitchen design, as this is a key element of every project, FiftyPointEight and Pascoe Interiors have future aspirations to extend their collaboration into a more complete package. With plenty of projects coming up, there will be no shortage of options to allow greater collaboration.

Finals season and there’s still a chill in the air. I can’t wait to rug up with a spread and a bottle of wine in front of the fire this weekend.
