A project to extend and reconfigure a 3 storey semi-detached house in West Dulwich at ground floor and roof level.
The existing home has many generous and light filled rooms, however the ground floor rear of the house suffers from poor daylighting and very poor connections to the large garden. The design brief was to rectify this, creating a generous and open family space including a kitchen, dining and living area. In addition, a loft extension is required to create a bedroom and bathroom for visiting family.
The works to the ground floor includes the middle of house, where a new downstairs WC, large cloak area, and utility room are proposed. This practical accommodation allows the new family living space to the rear to be as open and flexible as possible. The extension takes a wing like profile in plan and section, opening up the internal space to the large garden.
Both the ground floor extension and roof extension are proposed to be clad in a cement panel, creating a contemporary, refined look for the additions, with a colour that is complimentary to the existing brickwork.
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, beginning with the ground floor works.
