The existing house is a typical 1970s style modernist property, which displays a mixture of materials and period detailing of the era.
It is predominantly built from a dark grey brickwork with cream coloured mortar joints. The twin mono pitched roofs are concrete plain tiles with white verge and gutter boards. The windows are modern replacements of grey UPVC with a variety of styles from front to back.
The aim of the project is to cohesively extend both the ground and first floor of the house. The project aims to increase the bedrooms from four to five, ensuring all are comfortable in size. In addition, we will create a series of utile and comfortable spaces at ground floor level.
We produced three different options for the extension and the re-arrangement of the existing layout to create a flowing series of internal spaces. We have then reviewed these options with the client to finalise the arrangement and design.
We have gained planning permission for the project via South Cambridgeshire District Council and are currently on site with D&R Copeland Builders (Royston). The scheme has developed slightly since planning and we will keep you posted of any developments in our news page.
