Refurbishment of existing house, extension, garage conversion and alterations to form open plan living/ kitchen and dining space.
The proposal was to remove part of the wall between the kitchen and utility room (a poor quality rear extension) thus forming the new kitchen diner space. The roof has been replaced for an unventilated sloped roof with frosted roof windows. Also, the proposal was to convert the existing garage into a bedroom; careful consideration was given to regulatory compliance in terms of water and weatherproof and thermal upgrading. Our intention was therefore to create a modern intervention, regarding the original building through the use of materials and elements to match the existing style.
