Any form of extension must be considerate to the neighbouring properties if planning consent is to be granted. With this project, I demonstrated how a two storey rear extension with a first floor balcony would not impact on the neighbouring properties Right of Light, or their garden amenity spaces.
The design greatly increases the ground floor living accommodation to provide a home office, storage facilities, a Utility Room and WC, and an open plan living/kitchen/dining area which spans the width of the house. This open plan area has full height glazing to the rear wall to enable the space to visually and physically flow out into the rear garden.
A new bedroom and en-suite is carefully positioned at first floor level which creates a visually strong gable element framed in Oak. An enclosed balcony is included to the bedroom which also forms a canopied area for the folding sliding doors below.
