"Our client was looking to build a two-storey side extension in order to accommodate an enlarged dining area, utility room, and WC on the ground floor, and a bedroom and relocated bathroom on the first floor. Their preferred style was modern, but not too stark. This would replace the existing garage on the ground floor. "

Project details

This project was a great example of how to improve your home in order to better entertain family and friends. The new development meant the home was given a super spacious dining room that took up roughly a quarter of the overall ground floor! Quite a luxury. This project was carried out under full planning permission, which was granted on 7th August 2018.

Solution

For the ground floor, I removed part of the external wall in order to create a spacious dining area, which was attached to the kitchen in a semi open plan layout. Behind this stood a relocated and enlarged utility room and WC. For the first floor, I incorporated an extra bedroom into the layout, with an enlarged bathroom. To this floor I added three skylights - one in the new bedroom, one in the ensuite, and one in the newly enlarged bathroom, which filled the space with plenty of natural light.
