The extension and reconfiguration of the ground floor of a semi-detached house in Bromley, creating a new family / kitchen / dining space together with a re-landscaped garden.
The existing home no longer suited the growing family, with disconnected and small rooms not being used to their potential. The brief was to create a space for the family to gather to cook, dine and relax, and to modify existing rooms to better suit the family’s needs.
A simple side return extension has been proposed that maximises the internal volume. The roof line of the extension increases dramatically as it moves away from the existing house, creating an internal space over 3.5m in height where a ‘garden room’ seating area is proposed. This merges with the kitchen, which is positioned within the top lit new extension.
An existing room is to be reconfigured as a music room and will be directly connected to the new extension. Practical matters are responded to with the creation of a new utility area and a cloak storage area to the hallway.
We have been appointed to provide full architectural services from concept and ideas studies to developing detailed design for tender and construction. The project is due on site in summer 2018.
