With a clever first floor extension we transformed a 1960s bungalow on the Isle of Wight into a contemporary house.

Remodelling and first floor extension

This project went ahead after we successfully appealed the local authority's decision to refuse permission. Our solution to turn this house into an aspirational coastal home was to remove the tiled roof entirely and add a first floor section to the central part of the house. Our clever design resulted in the overall height of the property being lower, whilst opening up visual separation with the neighbouring properties.

We designed the new storey using a timber frame with high levels of insulation that was finished externally with render and natural timber cladding, The new first floor provided a penthouse style master bedroom, dressing area and bathroom suite and a private balcony with views over the Solent.

Location: Ryde, Isle of Wight

Designed: 2009
