Completed in late 2018, this project comprised modernisation, alterations and a rear extension to a tired 1930’s bungalow, creating a flexible home for a growing family.
Initial alterations included the downtaking of an inappropriate modern uPVC conservatory to the rear, as well as a dingey garage which dominated a large portion of the family garden. uPVC windows were replaced throughout and a new timber clad garage/workshop ancillary was erected in the redundant space to the west of the house, opening up the garden to connect with a proposed family living area.
Reconfiguration of a disjointed plan at ground floor allowed for a large open plan family entertaining space to the rear, connecting to the south west facing garden via full height glazed doors. The kitchen dining space within the existing building opens into a new living area within a charred timber clad extension. Clever planning and smart storage solutions ensure that the family have all of the utility space required, without the simple layout being interrupted.
At first floor, introduction of large frameless glazed dormers to the front and rear have opened up the single room attic space, which now contains two generous, bright bedrooms and a bathroom, maximising the roof space with ample storage within the coombs.
