About the project

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.

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
