About the project

Purchased as a final home for retirement, my Clients wanted to modernise this dormer bungalow to provide a home that was functional, aspirational and low maintenance.

The warmth of sunlight and natural lighting to the interior were important factors so the internal room locations where carefully considered and an angled rear extension designed to capture the late evening sun. A simple pallet of through-colour render, untreated timber cladding which will naturally silver, and large areas of glass will help to achieve their requirements. A new entrance to the front of the house with reshaped windows and cladding creates a far more contemporary home, providing a more welcoming approach home and far more presence on the street.

Key Features

– Modernising a traditional bungalow

– Harnessing natural sunlight and daylight

– Open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area

– Wall of openable glass overlooking the rear garden

– Timber & render cladding

"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
