About the project
When my Clients bought this house, neither the house or gardens had been touched for decades. Essentially, it was a two bedroom house with three small and dark ground floor rooms. The task was to turn this house into a 4 bedroom family home with open plan ground floor living space. The complication was that it is located within a Green Belt area where strict planning restrictions on volume and floor area increases are imposed.
By raising the roof just over a meter, two large bedrooms and an En-Suite where added in the roof space. As this added very little to the impact the building had on the Green Belt area, I was then able to maximise the floor area increases to the ground floor level.
By creating a curved extension on the corner of the existing house, a large open plan living area was created which provides wide sweeping views of the garden. Smaller existing rooms where kept to provide a snug area, an entrance foyer, and utility/WC/storage facilities.
