New Project – Extension and alterations, Browning Drive, Eaton Ford

We have published a new project we have been working on for a private client at Browning Drive in Eaton Ford, St Neots. It is a really fantastic project where we have been asked to extend, alter and refurbish a pretty standard detached dwelling into a charismatic piece of domestic architecture!

This shows when you carefully review the brief of the client, understand the existing fabric of the building and then push these boundaries; you can create unique designs for the house. It is a kind of ‘Ugly house to Lovely house’ idea! Onwards to planning!

You can see more here and we will keep you informed of the progress.

New Project – Rear extension and alterations, Greatford, Stamford.

We have been commissioned to design a rear extension to a property in Greatford, Stamford. The property is a semi-detached house with great views out across their gardens and fields beyond. The extension will sit comfortably on the rear elevation and provide the private clients additional space crucial for their family.

We are in the process of awaiting the result of a neighbour consultation scheme with a view to start the detailed design process once completed. You can see more here.

Planning Granted – Kenilworth Close, Eaton Socon.

We have been granted planning permission for our rear and side extension scheme in Eaton Socon. The project will see the addition of a single storey rear extension and a side first floor extension to this family home. The planning department at Huntingdonshire District Council did not have any concerns with the design or the architecture being presented including allowing the front elevation to be flush with the existing house (ie. rather than setting it back by a foot).

We are now in the process of discussing with the client on the next steps with the view to taking this forward to detailed design stage and construction. We will keep you posted of any developments. You can view more about this project here.

Goes in for planning – Kenilworth Close, Eaton Socon

Our scheme for a private client on Kenilworth Close in Eaton Socon, St Neots has gone in for planning. The design has been developed since our three feasibility studies for the property to incorporate discussions with them and amalgamate two different designs. We think its going to look great and will give them the additional space their family needs!

We will keep you posted of the planning process at Huntingdonshire District Council and hopefully we should hear before Christmas 2018!

Option 03 - External view

New project – Rear extension and alterations, Huntingdon

We have been approached to undertake some changes to a property in Huntingdon. We are looking to complete a rear extension using permitted development rules and guidance to avoid the lengthy planning process. We have designed three feasibility studies for the client and are in the process of finalising the scheme moving forward.

On Site – Wrap Around – Wordsworth Avenue, Eaton Ford

Works commenced on site in March 2018 with a local building firm – Joseph Construction Ltd; and despite an initial delay due to an unforeseen drain, are progressing well with works to the roof on the road to completion.

We have been developing the design further with the client to ensure the right kitchen arrangement and first floor layout for them as a family. Initial feedback from the client is positive and they can’t wait to enjoy their extended and refurbished home.

We will keep you posted of any developments but here are a few on site photographs to show the progress.

Wrap around – Wordsworth Avenue, Eaton Ford, Goes in for planning

We have submitted our scheme for planning. The private client on Wordsworth Avenue in Eaton Ford commissioned us to review an extension to the property, coupled with a series of internal alterations. The submission was issued to Huntingdonshire District Council Planning Department for a Householder Application and we hope to have a result by the end of November 2017.

The scheme has been amended slightly since the original feasibility sketches, but the Option 1 scheme is fairly similar. The proposal will give the client additional floor space to the ground floor, which will alter the arrangement internally and offer views out to their garden. The addition at first floor will create two large bedrooms and a shower room for their extended family.

We will keep you posted of any developments and let you know the outcome. You can view more about the project here.

Rear Extension – High Street, Shepreth – On site

Our design for a private client in Shepreth, Royston has been on site now for a few months. The project has involved the construction of a rear two storey extension with additional internal alterations. The works have been progressing well with the builders now concentrating on finishing the external appearance, internal linings and final fix of mechanical and electrical services. The design has changed from our approved planning scheme due to financial constraints, but the build is looking good.

Here are a few pictures from our recent visits. We will keep you posted on any further developments. You can learn more about the project here.

Internal alterations – Ashfield, Kimbolton – Completed

Our scheme and works for a private client in Kimbolton have been completed. The works involved altering the external appearance of the extension, changing the roof design and reconfiguring the internal arrangement. We have now created a large open plan space that the private client and their family can fully enjoy. They are looking to replace the kitchen and the island unit at a later date to complete the final piece of the puzzle.

We have taken some final pictures of the project and uploaded them to the project page. You can see more of the pictures here.

Two storey extension – Rectory Close, Goes in for planning

We have been busy developing the final scheme for the project, and this has been submitted for planning to Huntingdonshire District Council Planning Department. The scheme uses a combination of the feasibility options we completed for the client. This ensured the design worked well with the existing building, while also creating additional space that will enable the client to alter the interior for their optimum use.

We will keep you posted on any further developments and hope to receive planning by November 2017. You can view more on the project here.
