The house was originally built in the 1980s and the clients was looking to improve the internal layout and relationship between the house and garden.

Our solution was to open up the dining room, snug and kitchen into one open plan space, which also included a side / rear extension.

The brief was to allow for as much natural light as possible. Our design incorporated a 3m by 2m roof lantern and a glazed wall with an open corner. To compensate for the thermal loss through the glazing, we have provided extra insulation in the roof and floor.

The project is due to start on site in early 2022.

Structural Engineer works were undertaken by Rachel McCarthy.

The clients came to us as they wanted to improve the ground floor layout to include more space for the kitchen and dining/living areas. These areas were relatively small when compared to the overall footprint of the house.

As the property had a wide side access, our solution was a connected side and rear extension. The existing space benefitted from an airy 2.8m high ceiling, which was continued with the new extension to create a sense of volume and space.

A floor to ceiling Crittall style window at the rear frames the views of the nearby Chawton Park Woods in the background. The use of natural light was further utilised with a large roof light.

The additional floorspace has transformed the open plan area, allowing each separate function more room and greater flexibility.

Our clients are overjoyed with the results and are now able to enjoy the house to its full potential.
