This inspiring home was unique as Hamilton King was asked to ambitiously maximise space while creating an innovative and comfortable home. The design solution was an open plan ground floor with full-width contemporary extension and in addition a first and second-floor extension. This solution achieved what the client wanted; a beautifully designed yet functional home that increased the square footage to suit their families’ needs below.
With a concise brief from the client to maximise internal space and natural light, Hamilton King set out the concept design stage with a key focus on an abundance of glazing and internal space planning. Multiple concepts were put forward to the client and after further refinement, a scheme was decided upon. Further detailing and design considerations were implemented including overview 3D models of both internal spaces and external architectural design.
Hamilton King was aware of the potential constraints that could have been imposed by the Local Planning Authority and tailored the design to sit within these restrictions. The project was split 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.
Within this stage of the project, we further refine the design principals and create detailed drawings and specifications for Building Control approval, prior to tendering. Further material samples and specifications were concluded for both internal and external aspects of the house. Contemporary features including a bespoke staircase were detailed for manufacture and works simultaneously with the classic contemporary materials, finishes and features which have been incorporated throughout the project.
The main contractor was chosen through the tendering process and we are currently mid-build.
The result is a beautifully designed home meeting the client’s ambitions of more space and functionality. We are very proud of the innovative design scheme and with achieving complex planning approvals. This current project is expected to be finished in Spring 2020.
"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."
