Complete Renovation Restoring Original Features

project category


Single storey rear extension and complete renovation.


project description


This property is within a Conservation Area and one of the client’s main priorities was to restore its original features on the front elevation. This meant changing the windows, front door, rendering and constructing an entirely new roof.


The rear elevation was a different matter; the idea was to achieve a contemporary appearance, which meant that original features were updated, and new features were to be in a modern style.


On the ground floor we extended single storey to infill the area between the boundary and main side wall and removed the awkward rooms to the rear which made a useable open plan kitchen/diner with a snug.  We then pitched the new roof in glass to make an amazing feature from both inside and out. My client wanted to optimise the light so we inserted bi-fold doors across the rear elevation and slip windows in the side elevation.


On the first floor we changed the layout to the main bathroom to make it larger and turned the bedroom next door into a study which has doors going out onto a balcony with glass balustrades to match the other contemporary features.


Second Floor; we amended the layout to incorporate en-suites into both rooms with a dressing room in the master bedroom.
