We radically transformed the performance and comfort of this family home in South East London which was dated, to a high-quality modern family home, fit for the 21st century.
Our forward-thinking client was looking for space to adapt to the needs of their growing family.
As part of the extension and refurbishment works, we extended the rear of the house. The extension was stepped with a large picture window with views out onto the landscaped garden accessed by a single-glazed door. The landscaped garden has two patio areas connected by stepping stones, a brick planter, and high-level timber planter.
The extension was lit by a large glazed roof over the side extension and a single roof light to the rear portion of the extension. The extension was constructed using London stock brick to match the existing and internally the small details were complementary to the age of the property. Maintaining the traditional yet modern feel of this family home.
The project goals were to also medernise key areas and improve the thermal performance to the rear of the property. Most importantly the space was designed to be functional to improve the day to day living. This included the creation of a downstairs toilet, separate utility space, and under-stair storage area.
As part of the works the former dining room was refurbished to create a study with rich dark blue tones, with French timber doors leading into the brightly lit extension. Providing a great transition between the old and the new.
The project was built with great craftsmanship and care which has resulted in an addition to the home that complements the existing building whilst providing the additional spaces suited to this family's needs.
