Edwardian Home Extension

As with many people our clients for this project have moved to working from home permanently and are additionally expecting a second child. Their beautiful Edwardian home needed its kitchen brought into the 21st century and a new dormer attic conversion to accommodate this growing family and a new a dedicated office space. Our proposal adds a brick ground floor side extension and attic conversion with a zinc clad dormer creating living space in the kitchen area and add a fourth bedroom with improved home office space.

We wanted to make sure the design sensitively complimented the existing building, recognising its setting, materials, style and family home use while seeking to introduce more modern elements and materials to the building. Being on a corner plot it was also important to respect and add visual interest to the side elevation. The addition of large windows, sliding doors and bifold door will add additional light and connection to the garden in what is a currently gloomy part of the house due to its north facing aspect. Planning achieved late 2021 and we are due to start on site in mid 2022.
