Project details

When the owners of this Victorian terrace approached Resi, they brought a lot of exciting ideas with them. The property had been in the family since the 1950s and had barely been updated since. The homeowners wanted to completely modernise, extending the ground floor and altering areas of the first floor, all while staying true to the property’s history.

A stunning wraparound extension

The addition of a large open-plan kitchen/diner was high on the homeowner’s wish list. Within the space, they wanted a kitchen island, lots of light and views of their beautiful garden. These wishes were met in style, with a wraparound extension giving heaps of extra space for a more functioning and accessible open-plan kitchen, a six-seater dining table and a huge worktop island. Large glass windows and doors around the extension provide the extra natural light the homeowners craved, whilst also allowing a view of their garden and patio area. The windows and doors are completed in a modern crittall style, a design the homeowners wanted echoing throughout the house.

Modernising the rest of the home

The living room and additional dining room were also modernised while maintaining some of the property’s Victorian charm. Both rooms possess their original fireplaces, a classy, eye-catching touch and a testament to the history of the family home. Upstairs interior alterations were also made in order to fix a layout problem that forced bathroom users to go through a bedroom. Both the bathroom and bedroom were contemporised in the process, completing a dramatic home transformation that anyone would feel lucky to live in.

The Resi difference

This entire project was brought to life with a top to bottom Resi experience. From surveying, architectural design, planning support, building regulations, to contractor introductions - the entire Resi team worked together to make this project a success. This not only yielded stunning results, it meant these homeowners could relax as they knew each part of their journey was managed by a team they had grown to trust. What's more, through their Dashboard, they could see everything was on track, no matter the time and place.

Meet Daniela, the Lead Designer

I remember being very excited when we heard Southwark council had approved our designs for this property. Wraparound extensions are excluded from permitted development rights, which is why it’s always important to have an experienced architect by your side who can help you navigate the admin challenges. Now that I can see the final results, I’m thrilled with how those gorgeous swaths of glazing have turned out!
