The original house

Extension & internal remodelling

Our brief was to turn this tired 1930s semi into a home a young couple could be proud of. Despite initial opposition from the planning authority, we were able to gain planning permission and detailed Building Regulation permission to help make our clients' dream home come to fruition.

The original central kitchen was divided up to increase the width of the hallway and create a utility room and ground floor WC. The two storey side extension increased the area of the original living room to 48m2 and the kitchen was relocated into it. The newly created L shaped kitchen living area is now flooded with light due to tall patio doors that wrap around the patio and oversized picture windows that overlook the garden.

At first floor level a master bedroom with ensuite was added and we reconfigured the bathroom layout.
