Work in progress. Submitted for planning December 2017.
We have been asked by the owner of this large villa bungalow to look at remodeling the property to provide an open plan layout with improved use of internal space. We are now looking to re-design the Ground floor to take full advantage of the raised views to the South over the garden terrace. We have also been asked to provide 2 additional bedrooms in the loft space, which is currently used for storage. The design brief is to phase the work so the house does not need to be vacated.
Open plan Living
The new extension is on the original footprint of the original Kitchen, with views onto the garden. Large South- facing glazing has been incorporated to increase solar gains in the heating season. The main bathroom is now located in the loft, flanked by 2 new bedrooms.
The existing property has raised views over a sloping rear garden. The recent conservatory addition is small and blocks windows onto the garden from the rear bedroom and bathroom. The 70's style kitchen extension is dark with a low ceiling.
Cut away section showing the full height kitchen and external covered patio space. The patio leads onto the garden room and hallway beyond. The design has been considered to provide glimpses through to the garden from the entrance hall.
