OPEN PLAN LIVING

 

Residential Extension: Infill 2 storey Extension

Status: Completed

Brief: This client wanted to make significant changes to the downstairs of their property by opening up and extending the kitchen to provide a family living and dining space with generous views of their garden.  The design provided them with both the all important view of their garden and a physical link to the outside space via sliding doors which led on to a raised patio. Upstairs this extension provided an en suite for the existing master bedroom.

OPEN PLAN LIVING

 

Residential Extension: Single storey infill extension, garage conversion & garden room extension

Status: Completed

Brief: 

This client wanted to expand their existing kitchen and dining space, whilst retaining a separate utility room.  They were also keen to replace their existing conservatory for a garden room.  By moving the utility into the rear of the garage, and designing an infill extension, a larger kitchen was created with space for a dining table and kitchen island.  The garden room utilises a vaulted ceiling and feature windows to make the most of the south facing garden.  The client was keen to have a light space with significant glazing. This was carefully considered during the design process, allowing their vision to be achieved whilst still meeting the Building Regulation requirements.

Residential Extension: Rear single storey extension

Status: Completed 

Brief: This client wanted to futureproof their house by providing an adaptable ground floor which incorporated an open plan kitchen, dining and living space for the family to enjoy, an accessible shower room and the potential for a bedroom in the future should this be required.  This planning approved design has given the family an informal open living space to enjoy, with a shower room, separate utility and a formal dining room.

LARGE

HOME

EXTENSION

Residential Extension: Large house extension in Oxfordshire.  Two storey side extension, single storey rear extension & internal layout alterations

Status: Under Construction

Brief: This client required an Architect to bring to life their ideas for a large open plan living space.  They were keen to completely remodel and transform their family home to provide a grand living space and additional bedrooms, including a master suite with walk in wardrobe.  The large rear extension provides space for kitchen, dining and living as well as an additional bedroom/study.  The two storey side extension has provided a garage/store, downstairs WC, cloakroom and generous utility space on the ground floor, whilst upstairs houses the master suite.  This vision was made possible through clever design and a robust house holder planning application.
