Croydon Road

Brief

This house in a Conservation Area had been previously extended with an unimaginative flat-roofed box. Our client required a new kitchen/dining/living area and new utility room.

Response

Using the footprint of the existing extension as a starting point we proposed a new lead-covered pitched roof incorporating roof-lights. The new roof extends out over the garden elevation to create a verandah to new bi-fold doors. This roof also continues around the side elevation to cover an existing bay window and to create a new entrance porch to the front door. Internal walls were removed to create an attractive new kitchen/dining/living area well connected to the rear garden.
