|Hosted by Angela Scanlon, Your Home Made Perfect ‘transforms problematic pads into heavenly homes’ with the support of Laura and a select group of top interior designers, culminating in an exciting reveal at the end of each episode.
Having worked as an architect for over 12 years, Laura Jane Clark is an expert when it comes to innovative ideas and incredible transformations. As well as founding Lamp Architects, Laura has also appeared on Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces and has recently written a book The Handbook of Home Design: An Architect’s Blueprint for Shaping your Home released March 2023. She boasts almost 60,000 followers on her Instagram account, too.
Speaking about the Your Home Made Perfect episode itself that aired on the 8th August, Laura says: “I created the concept of how to bring a large, cold, disjointed house that hadn’t been touched since the 1990s into a warm, sensitively designed, sustainably built family home. As the design came together, I worked with Climadoor to detail and create the more unusual doors and high level windows to bring the project to life!”
Laura discovered Climdoor via Instagram and was wowed by their unrivalled range of stylish door solutions. She then reached out to the team to help transform the converted barn in Solihull for series four of Your Home Made Perfect.
She says: “Climadoor offered really good value, quality and variety of design. It was great working with the team. One of the best things was having a direct point of contact once the installation started so any problems could be sorted very quickly. I worked particularly closely with them to work out how we could create some slightly unusual doors which required finding a design that opened to and from the indoor/outdoor kitchen. They also supplied the black replacement windows throughout the home.”
Founded in 2015, Climadoor specialises in manufacturing and supplying design-led doors. What made this project special is that the two bifolds met at a corner on the extension which required a specialised aluminium pressing to connect the frames of the bifolds around the corner. But having worked on a number of complex projects over the years, the team were confident they could deliver the perfect finish.
Communication for the project was managed by Oliver Kearns, a long standing member of the Climadoor team. He says: “Good communication between myself and Laura was vital to achieve the best result and to ensure both delivery and installation went smoothly. This was a fantastic experience as we were able to offer a specialised service to keep the project on track and on time. The final result speaks for itself. The team were excited to represent our city, Derby, and watch the episode on TV.”
