Planning approval in Four Marks

After close collaboration with East Hants District Council (EHDC,) we recently secured planning permission to enlarge a 1930’s bungalow with an exciting contemporary ground and first floor extension totalling 70 sqm. The project will also include extensive remodelling of the exiting layouts and upgrading of the external finishes to include a smooth render and timber cladding combination that will compliment the wooded surrounds of the site. Works have now started on site with Maple Building Services and will be complete by the summer.

The extension and remodelling works have completely transformed their characterful 19th century cottage into a sensitively designed contemporary home. The key features include an open plan kitchen/dining area with soft seating and utility and ground floor bathroom. It is always a privilege to share the journey with our clients and help them achieve their dream.

Planning approved for a new house near Henley-on-Thames

We are delighted to have secured planning approval for a stunning new house in the village of Shiplake. The new house will provide 200 sqm (2,150 sq ft) of internal space with the layout designed to maximise the orientation of the sun and the privacy of a surrounding wooded embankment. The house features an open plan kitchen/family space and guest bedroom on the ground floor, with the first floor featuring a vaulted master bedroom suite with views of the surrounding woodland. To compliment the house, a landscape design will help to bring the inside and outside elements of the plot together to form a unique relationship. A renewable energy design will also ensure the house has minimal environmental impact on the surrounding countryside. A material palette of render, timber cladding and a zinc roof will provide a visually interesting and complementary contrast. We are looking forward to build works starting on site this spring.

Planning granted in Camberley

We were delighted to recently receive planning approval from Surrey Heath for a contemporary styled 190 sqm two storey rear and side extension in Camberley. After close collaboration with Surrey Heath, we were able to overcome their concerns relating to nearby tree preservation orders and design features. The bespoke design has been based around the topography of the site, which has a rear garden formed by a 2m high retaining wall and its secluded position at the end of a cul-de-sac. Key features will include a double height hall, an open plan family space and master bedroom suite with vaulted ceiling and terrace. On site works will start in early spring.
