Simon Cummings, Nordpeis Quadro 2T, Gloucestershire
If you’re a fan of George Clarke, you may have been keeping up with Channel 4’s Ugly House to Lovely House. In Episode 1, Simon’s and Lisa’s ugly house was transformed into a contemporary, revitalised home with the help of architect Laura Jane Clark. They chose a Nordpeis Quadro 2T to suit their living space.
Simon and Lisa, Gloucestershire
February 12, 2018
We successfully applied to take part in the second series of the prime-time Channel 4 TV programme “Ugly House To Lovely House” hosted by architect George Clarke. We were given the services of architect Laura Jane Clark of Lamp Architects, who completely redesigned our home in a way Lisa and I could not have envisaged. With the help of a great team of builders, the house was completely transformed, beyond our expectations.
We always wanted a wood burner in our home. Originally we looked at the Studio Duplex, but this was not possible in the constraints of the building, so we had to look at other options which would fit in the limited space we had available. The Nordpeis Quadro 2T was the obvious choice; it had the right balance of size/scale and heat output, and it happened we also loved the modern contemporary design.
The burner sits subtly yet neatly in the corner of our main living area, whilst being able to throw heat all around the house. Having a combination of underfloor, radiator and wood burner heating options means our home is now a warm and cosy place to be and should never be cold again – which was one of the main reasons behind the renovation in the first place.
