Victoria Crescent

About the project

Located in a conservation area, it is important that new development does not harm the character of the area. Careful consideration was taken to create a modern ground floor extension and ancillary out-buildings which were either concealed from the public domain, or presented an appearance that was in-keeping with the area. It was also decided that to create more upper level bedroom space, the attic would be converted without the use of dormer windows which would affect the shape of the existing roof.

The South facing rear garden has been connected to the house via a very contemporary side extension which has large glazed patio doors. This area will form the heart of the living accommodation with the lounge/dining/kitchen areas flowing from the existing house, into the extension, and out onto the patio and garden beyond. The front entrance has also been relocated to bring people into the centre of the house. This opens up the ground floor layout and allows the rather grand central staircase to be major focal point.

Ancillary accommodation is also created on the location of an existing garage to provide a home study and gymnasium area which face out onto the private rear garden.

"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
