First-Floor Side Extension & Ground Floor Refurbishment – Esher, Surrey

The driving force behind this project was the ambition to create a single open-living space along the entire rear of the property. We successfully achieved this by creating visual separations such as a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, exposed brickwork and well-positioned furniture. The ground floor created a Snug, Dining Area, Kitchen, Boot Room and Utility Room. The first floor side extension added a walk-in-wardrobe and En-Suite to the Master Bedroom.

The brief for this project was to create a new open-plan Kitchen / Dining / Snug Area, as well as a new study, new Utility and garage. We replicated the original stepped rear elevation in the new extension by creating a double-height space over the dining area. The different areas have been defined by exposed beams internally and black bricks with exposed steel work externally.

Single-Storey Rear Extension – Banstead, Surrey

This four-bedroom property was in a need of an extension which would not only create a new modern Kitchen, but also consolidate the existing extensions in order to give the property a clear identity. We decided to create a series of pitched roofs all leading to the garden. The main pitched roof is topped by a glazed pyramid which flood the open-plan Kitchen with natural light throughout the day. A new terrace and pergola in the rear garden also helped to tie-in together the new and the old to bring the finishing touches to this traditional yet modern family home.

Loft Conversion – Weybridge, Surrey

The home oweners required two extra bedrooms for the growing family with a shared bathroom. The two bedrooms are formed from two tile-hung rear dormers, with a flat roof slate dormer set between the two gables.  An internal void has been created above the new staircase allowing extra light into the existing first floor landing. Construction was completed in January 2016.

Two-storey Side Extension – Morden

The property had previously had several extensions, however the brief for this project was to design an annex which included an open-plan Kitchen/Diner, a bedroom and bathroom upstairs and to maximise on natural light. The two storey extension was designed with its own entrance. A large rear dormer creates a double-height space connecting the two floors together. The extension was completed in November 2015.

Loft Conversion – Ashtead, Surrey

It was essential during this project that the aesthetics of the proposed loft conversion were in keeping with the character of the existing Edwardian property.  The front dormer window has matching materials and details to the main gable and it formed the space for a new staircase to access the loft conversion. The rear large flat-roof lead dormer is split between the bedroom and en-suite. The space in the loft is maximised by using concealed storage in the eaves space which allowed for a generous bedroom suite.  As part of the works the two existing bathrooms were also refurbished.

Side Extension – Gym & Garage

Ashtead, Surrey

The main focus of the project was to create a new gym at the rear of the property and replace the existing garage. This was done by combining Edwardian elegance with modern touches which allowed the new extension to become part of the home effortlessly. Matching materials were used throughout the extension. The rear gym is accessed via the existing lounge and opens up to the south-facing garden terrace.  It was critical to design a room which felt spacious and bright in a tight and narrow space. This was achieved by creating a vaulted ceiling over the middle of gym with high-level glazing, thus maximised on natural sunlight.
