Stage: Planning Approved (Awaiting Planning For Outbuilding)
With a family incoming, it became clear to the owners of this home in New Malden that they needed to upgrade their space.
Our client is a professional cook, so naturally they wanted a great kitchen living space that allowed for both cooking and entertaining. An additional element of the brief was to adapt their space and create something for a growing family and more in alignment with modern day living.
In the design concept phase we designed a bright, open-plan living kitchen that will be both a practical and sociable space. With cooking being a large part of our clients’ lives we also designated space to a moderate sized pantry and large dining area, which will overlook the garden. To gain this additional space we have gained permission from the Local Authority to extend at the rear and side of the ground floor.
Other work on the ground floor included taking the existing garage and turning it into an additional bedroom with an ensuite. A small portion of the garage will remain at the front of the house, which will function as bike storage.
Making use of the large garden, we have created designs which will turn a portion of it into an outbuilding, which will house a home office, outdoor workshop and shed space. On the external wall of the outbuilding will be an outdoor kitchen area – perfect for summer dining.
Now we have the green light from the Local Planning Authority for the ground floor side & rear extension, and garage conversion, we are working on structural engineering and party wall agreements.
