This inspiring home was unique as we were asked to ambitiously maximize space while creating an innovative and comfortable home. We carried out – from concept design through to complete build – a large-scale extension and renovation to all floors of the home, including a loft conversion.
Our client was concise in their brief asking us to be innovative in maximizing space and natural light while creating a comfortable home.
We set out the concept design stage with a key focus on an abundance of glazing and internal space planning. We put forward multiple concepts to the client and after further refinement, a scheme was decided upon. We created further design plans and details including overview 3D models of both internal spaces and external architectural design.
We were aware of the potential constraints that could have been imposed by the Local Planning Authority and tailored the design to sit within these restrictions. We split the project into three applications to achieve maximum potential by use of Householder Planning and Permitted Development rights. After an extended decision period, the full scheme was approved to ground, first, and second-floor levels which matched the proposed scheme from the Concept Design stage.
We further refined the design principles and created detailed drawings and specifications for Building Control approval, prior to tendering. We designed the details of contemporary features for manufacture, such as the bespoke staircase.
We selected the main contractor for the build through the tendering process and the project went into build for a total of 52 weeks.
The result is a beautifully designed home meeting the client’s brief of more space and functionality.
Works include the creation of an open plan interior ground floor with the addition of a ‘full width’ contemporary rear extension, and a complete first and second-floor renovation and extension.
We were able to achieve through clever planning a significant increase in living space to this family home within realistic budgets.
"A pleasure to work with the team at Hamilton King. They worked collaboratively and creatively with us to make our dream home come true and we're excited to see it come to life slowly as we progress."
