Our client required additional kitchen, dining and bedroom accommodation and external modernisation of this 1960s detached house.
Although our client had been previously advised this was not possible, our careful design permitted the construction of a new bedroom on top of the existing garage thus saving considerable cost. A modern single storey rear extension provided an enlarged kitchen and new dining area well connected to the garden space via corner external doors. Externally, new white painted render and panels of natural timber boarding to both new and existing parts provides visual coherence to the whole.
"We wanted to extend our 1950’s house by adding a fourth bedroom, a playroom and a kitchen extension. Simon quickly understood the style we were looking for and came up with many suggestions around the core theme. During all parts of the engagement Simon suggested innovative solutions and challenged our thoughts in a non-intrusive manner with the result that our house has been turned into a wonderful contemporary property. The proportions of all the extended rooms are generous and simple added features such as a pillar-less corner door arrangement in the kitchen has ensured that the house has the wow factor we were after. Simon is a very engaging and competent architect and if we were to undertake another project we would use his services again".
