The owners of this detached house had outgrown their living accommodation and wished to create additional space for a hall, a more generous kitchen-diner, a utility room and a gym on the ground floor, an extended master bedroom, to include an ensuite and dressing room on the first floor and an additional bedroom, bathroom and media room on the second floor.
A generous full height side extension and triple pitched roof dormer loft extension allowed sufficient space for all of their requests to be met, whilst improving the overall aesthetic of the existing building.
The owner of this lovely Victorian cottage in Norfolk wished to extend their kitchen and dining room, in addition to creating a new WC and large utility room. We were asked to design a scheme which was to include the conversion of their existing garage and the extension of the rear of the property.
Keen to reduce the impact of their build on the environment, the Clients wished to include a limecrete floor and insulation levels above statutory requirements. They also requested we design a chunky timber framed pergola with glazed roof to the rear.
The Clients required a detailed package of drawings, including scheduling windows and doors for replacement or refurbishment, interior space planning and interior design input.
The owner of this family home primarily needed more space to allow for separate rooms for her two growing sons, who were currently sharing. A side extension provided an additional bedroom, as well as a dressing room and ensuite to the master bedroom on the first floor. A hallway incorporating a storage cupboard for shoes and coats, a WC/shower room and a study which would double up as a workspace for the Client and a study area for the children were created on the ground floor.
A further rear extension allowed the creation of a light and spacious kitchen diner, for entertaining.
The Clients on this project wished to expand the existing living accommodation on the ground floor, whilst integrating two existing outbuildings, to create a courtyard garden and a studio space, to enable one of the Clients to work from home.
Whilst considering the design, it was necessary to take into account its proximity to a Conservation Area and to attempt to maintain the integrity of the property, whilst meeting the requirements of both the Clients and the Local Authority.
The existing front door was accessed from within the garden, via a full height gate in the surrounding fence. This therefore needed to be left unlocked at all times, posing a security issue. The extension was designed to include a front door to the street elevation, with an entrance lobby to welcome visitors, whilst protecting the privacy of the living accommodation when directing Clients to the Studio area.
This project was drawn in 3D, including a walkthrough, to allow the Client the best opportunity to visualise the completed design.
The owners of this beautiful Edwardian home wished to complete a modest extension to the rear of their existing kitchen and dining room, to allow for the creation of an open plan kitchen diner.
Maintaining the integrity and character of the building was of great importance to the Client, so the finalised design incorporated reused and reclaimed architectural elements.
We worked closely with the Client to provide detailed layouts and elevations, as well as a Schedule of Works to ensure accurate quotations were received from Contractors, with the assurance that the best possible final finish would result.
Feeling they had outgrown their current house, but reluctant to move, our client asked us to investigate the addition of a master bedroom and bathroom to the loft space of their current home.
Their brief was to create a generously proportioned and luxurious master bedroom and bathroom within the loft space, which must blend stylistically with the rest of the house and provide adequate wardrobe space. In addition they required room for photovoltaic system equipment and a new boiler, as well as storage of personal possessions,
Stunning bifold doors and glass juliet balconies maximise the views and provide ventilation to both the bedroom and bathroom.
We suggested that the landing space be kitted out with fold-up airers to allow laundry to be air-dried out of sight of the living accommodation. An automatic flat roof velux provides ventilation to the landing space and stairs, with the security of a rain sensor in case of a sudden shower.
In addition to the photovoltaic array provided to the south facing roof, the construction boasts insulation levels well above those required for Building Regulations Approval. The clients report that they have never needed to heat the loft and that in fact the whole house is warmer following the construction work.
As a future project the client intends to replace the windows and doors with timber windows and full width bifold doors to match those of the loft.
The owner of this 1930s semi detached property wished to extend the footprint of the existing living accommodation to construct a WC, Utility Room and a more extensive Kitchen/Diner on the ground floor, with an additional bedroom and bathroom to be created on the new second floor.
These additional spaces were accommodated by extending to the side and to the rear on the ground floor, whilst a dormer loft conversion would encompass a master bedroom and ensuite on the second floor.
These busy clients work from home and required more space for their growing children and a home office, which meant exploring how best to maximise their interior space.
They decided a loft conversion would offer the best solution, so we provided a design which made space for an additional master bedroom and bathroom.
Black steel framed doors and simple juliet balconies gave the extension wow factor whilst maximising internal light levels.
The owner of this Victorian terrace home wished to extend their kitchen and create a kitchen diner by extending into their side return.
This design had to take account of the fact that the client was not seeking a party wall agreement with their neighbour and therefore all construction, including drainage, must be independant of the boundary wall.
The client for this new garage build wished to demolish and rebuild his existing garage in order to accommodate a larger, high spec space for his successful car detailing business
