We have been approached by a private client to review their property and see how best they to alter and refurbish the internal arrangement. The house is a 1930s semi detached property that was extended in the early 2000s with a side extension and attached garage.
The house suffers from a lack of cohesive thought from the previous extension that has left the house with a series of small spaces and no flow. In addition, the property has a fantastic garden to the rear that at present can’t be physically connected to the key entertainment spaces.
We completed three different options that looked to complete the following:
– large kitchen and dining space connected to the rear garden;
– connected play room for the children;
– separate large utility and boot room.
We were also asked whether this could fit within the permitted development rights of a property owner. All of the schemes were designed to eliminate planning permission and use the permitted development guidance. The house is situated within a conservation area but because the works are to a non-listed building and are simple changes these fit within the rights of the property.
We are now in the process of finalising a scheme with the client and progressing the initial phases of the work.
