A NEW HOME IN HIGHBURY & ISLINGTON

Traditional details with a modern twist.

My clients required a complete refurbishment to their family home in Islington. A new layout that includes a beautiful glass box extension to form an eating area off the kitchen, a master suite with dressing room and luxury bathroom with a nursery, guest bedroom and shower room on the top floor where all required.

Gorgeous Victorian details from the staircase to the master bedroom ceiling where retained and seamlessly joined with new work and style from the modern day.



KITCHEN EXTENSION IN PALMERS GREEN

A small extension to the rear of your property can hugely change how you use the ground floor of your home. Adding an extension allows you to push your kitchen back and create an open plan entertaining space. Keeping a separate room for a utility gives a home to the untidy items and allows for noisy washing machines to be hidden away out of an open kitchen.

Large glass doors allows for those summer days spent to and from the garden bringing the patio area in and giving space for alfresco dining.



GARAGE EXTENSION IN MUSWELL HILL

My client for the Garage Extension shown above asked me to create a practical multipurpose space. Firstly to provide an indoor space that can be used with the courtyard garden and secondly to provide a future space to build vintage cars.

As the main facade of the Garage faced the road and continued with the front of the existing house it was important the new build blended seamlessly with the existing. This was achieved by matching the proposed extension to the existing brick colour and details. Traditional details with a modern twist using the brick banding of the existing house to cap and finish the new extension. The flat roof to the garage is hidden behind the parapet wall and allowed space for an overhead roof light and solar panels. 



GARDEN ROOM IN PETERSFIELD

My clients for the above project wanted to add an additional seating area to their kitchen that also allowed them to look out over the surrounding fields and bring plenty of natural light into the busiest room in the house. A modern interpretation of a traditional Conservatory fitted seamlessly within the renovation and extension of the farmhouse was designed. A key feature of the proposed extension was the five piece bi-fold door, allowing my clients to open an entire wall of their kitchen in the summer months. This garden room brings together traditional design with a modern twist to the family home.

A garden room gives you an opportunity to create an all year round living space that extends your home and enhances your lifestyle. It can open up your house and by using bi-fold or sliding doors, flexibly blurs the boundaries between inside and out.



 

LOFT CONVERSION IN HORNDEAN

A loft conversion may be the best way to add additional space to any house. Originally the clients for the above project used their loft for storage but with a growing family decided additional bedrooms and a bathroom was needed. It was proposed to install an additional staircase within an existing cupboard keeping both first floor and loft landings feeling open and light. A roof light was installed to allow natural light down and over the existing staircase. It was important to my clients that although the loft has now a new purpose they were still able to store their possessions, so a large cupboard and wardrobe was incorporated into the design as well as low level cupboards within the small apex of the roof space.
