We were instructed to sympathetically divide up this large private dwelling into three equal sized town houses.
Our brief was to insure that each unit would be upgraded to meet modern building regulation standards yet maintain the charter of the dwelling. As part of the conversion we also erected a two storey extension on the side elevation and also converted the existing loft spaces into further bedrooms with ensuite.
We were approached by a local builder who had purchased a plot of land on the edge of the national park. We were instructed to design a three bed ‘Mews Style’ detached dwelling that was in keeping with the local vernacular.
With a good rapport with the developer we were able to deliver this project well within time and budget.
Loft extension to this existing two bed bungalow, stood within a substantial sized plot, with fabulous south facing views towards the rear of the property.
Our brief was to create a further two bedrooms, one with ensuite, within the existing loft space. To achieve this, we designed a substantial dormer window structure that made the most of the outstanding south facing views.
Listed building consent is required for all works of demolition, alteration or extension to a listed building, that affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. Listed buildings are much desired properties to own but they do come with lots of potential problems when it comes to repair and development.
We have worked on a large range of listed properties, from railings to the property frontage, to window replacement, internal alterations and extensions.
We were instructed to incorporate two bedrooms and separate bathroom within the existing loft void of this bungalow.
Our design intention was to introduce the new staircase into the hallway so that it appeared as an original part of the dwelling. The conversion was a real success and exceeded the clients expectations
