The conversion of the existing roof space to allow for a new master bedroom, dressing area and en-suite to form a 4 bedroom end terraced house. The works were subject to Conservation Area rulings and the proposals were approved first time.
This fantastic detached chalet-bungalow in Farnham, Surrey underwent a period of alterations and extensions to improve the visual appeal of the main entrance. A brief sketch depicting a simple idea, by extending a portion of the roof and cladding the underside with Larchwood.
This is the same project as the previous photo. Extensive alterations and extensions within a Rural Area, fighting RD2 policy guidelines. Both schemes shown fell under the 40% allocations, however the planners approved the coloured scheme favouring its less ‘bulky’ approach.
An internal re-fit of a large 5 bedroom detached property in a semi-urban area. Most of the works were done successfully by the owners but they required a bit more thought on a bathroom suite. A partial service provided, creating a new suite with his-and-hers sinks and using sublime polished ceramic tiles.
Working with a well-respected local developer providing a drawing package for the conversion of empty farm barns in a rural area. The scheme was phased in to two parts and each was successful with the planning authority and overall created two stunning conversions, one over two floors and the other a single floor conversion and extension.
Extensions and internal alterations to a 3 bedroom semi-detached house on Manor Road North. The existing rear living room was extended the full width of the property and converted in to a large family, dining room and open-plan kitchen. The existing living room to the front of the property was converted in to a TV room.
A single-storey rear extension in Merton, alongside the neighbouring property that was extended the year before. This was a more complex project involving missing main drains and thus had to be stepped in. The space was vaulted internally with a re-organised internal layout to provide family, utility room, extended kitchen and downstairs WC.
A further project on Manor Road in Esher. Similar principals were applied and the extension spanned full width and a return extension to the side with large bi-folding doors spanning full width on to a stunning south-facing landscaped garden. The entire ground floor was opened up, with one large reception room.
Very early sketch ideas for a new hall extension to a Grade II listed church in the grounds of St. Mary’s. Several schemes were put forward for consideration to the committee with a very modern and a more traditional style of architecture. Although both schemes were appreciated a more traditional scheme with modern twist was favoured. At time of writing the project is currently in for planning.
Another rear extension in this popular part of London that BESPRAK has been involved in! A simple but, incredibly effective, single-storey rear extension to a 3 bedroom end terrace house. The existing kitchen was typical of the era being very small and compact and not supporting its use to a growing family. The new kitchen was bolted-on to the rear of the property with the existing turned in to utility and WC space.
A further internal picture showing the vaulted ceiling with floor to ceiling glazing at the rear. The roof offers 4 rooflights that flood natural light in to the internal space. The client chose an array of reflective surfaces which further enhanced the volume of light flooding in.
An upgrade of an existing entrance hallway to a substantial detached residence. The once closed of dining room was opened up to form part of the new reception hall, and further enhancements included a new glass stairwell with respective balustrading to the first floor. The flooring was upgraded to tie in the dining room and helps correlate the feel of one large open-plan space.
A further internal shot of the barn conversion in Steep, Hampshire. The existing external walls can clearly be seen with new roof and first floor being installed.
Referring to the previous sketch in image 5, this shot clearly shows the new external wall and array of windows forming the ground and first floor accommodation. The external boarding will weather with the patina of time to a beautiful greyish silver colour. A traditional Edwardian terraced-house in Merton, London required a programme of updating and modernising to the ground floor.
