Utilising the homeowners permitted development rights, this project allowed the clients to insert a fantastic 'L' shaped dormer within their existing roof void and over the outrigger. The design produced by the team, included a set of bi-fold doors to encapsulate the views of the London skyline and a small cantilever to the rear dormer. This allowed for a full opening to connect the internal and external environments.
A clever detail to overcome strict planning policy relating to inserting balconies on properties within close proximity to neighbours. The remainder of the house was redesigned on a tight budget. An extension was not proposed, however through the removal of internal walls and a reconfiguration, the end product created a beautifully transformed home for the young family to enjoy.
