The elegant terraces of Kensington are amongst the most recognisable properties throughout the whole of London, and often require architects to envision innovative solutions to create additional space in such a tight-knitted and historic community.
Just 10 minutes away from our Battersea studio, the Royal Borough of Kensington is a world renowned area of London, known internationally for its beautiful architecture, luxury status, and Royal heritage! Home to the birthplace of Queen Victoria, Kensington Palace, and the largest park in central London- of course we refer to Hyde Park- Kensington is an area we have fallen in love with over the years.
Whether you are situated in the picturesque Kensington, the vibrant area of Notting Hill, the luxurious district of Knightsbridge, or the affluent area of Chelsea, Extension architecture can help you maximise your property value and create meaningful space for you and your family.
When working around central London, planning permission is never a straightforward task, but when the price per square meter of land is so high – at around £10,854!!! – extending your home either above ground or through the addition of a basement has never seemed so worthwhile! By working with Extension Architecture, we can help you to not only maximise your properties value, but also to create meaningful, beautiful spaces, through residential extensions, internal reconfigurations and interior design. Further to this, if you have a commercial property in need of an upgrade, our in-house commercial department will be happy to hear from you!
Did you know that a single square meter of land is worth approximately £10,854 in Kensington ?! Here at Extension Architecture, we understand that investing in your home to create high-quality spaces can not only increase the value of your home, but also drastically enhance your lifestyle.
We only deliver excellence
I’m highly recommending Extension Architecture for their expertise to turn around a difficult planning application that I had refused from 2 other architects and they managed to get my additional new house at the end. A 3 year journey, but it was well worth it! I cannot appreciate enough their planning knowledge, and also now we are breaking ground. Their tender pack has saved me alot of hassle in choosing material inside the house myself. Especially their kitchen design has been great and cannot wait to see it realised. Thanks for all your input so far…
Delighted with the application approval that we got yesterday. As discussed initially, we were dubious of our chances as our property in Weybridge sits in a flood risk area + conservation area. But our full application for the 4m extension to the rear have been approved without any hassle. Also Elmbridge council was able to give us the approval within 7 weeks, so an added bonus. Thanks Especially to Youno who was very helpful in outlining all the pitfalls and guiding us to this position.
Thank you for your efficient service. Really impressed with the level of service and the speed!
Working with Nadir at Extension Architecture was a truly trouble-free experience. They explained the process and was always at hand whenever I had questions. I trusted their judgement whenever they provided amendments to my initial plan and was thoroughly happy with the end result! 11/10
Beautiful extension, Thank you!
How we work in this area Our Architectural services in Kensington
Your dreams captured by our Kensington Architects
Our Kensington architects and planning consultants have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with the Royal Borough, with over 30 approved projects in the area throughout recent years. Known for its elegant town-houses, extensive royal and architectural heritage, and array of special land designations such as conservation areas and listed buildings, it is very likely that planning permission will be required to extend your home. Over the last decade, we have worked on a variety of projects in Kensington which has allowed us to build up our knowledge of the local planning policies, giving us the opportunity to guide you through the entire process from initial feasibility studies through to project completion. Specialising in residential extensions, but with a diverse portfolio including new build developments and commercial architecture, our Kensington architects are here to help.
Maximising space, not only for floor area, but also for improving the quality of your space and enhancing your lifestyle, is at the heart of Extension Architecture’s philosophy. Whether you envision an extension either above or below ground, Extension Architecture have the professional knowledge and experience to bring your ideas to life.
Did you know that Kensington suffered immensely during the Blitz in WW2, leading to much of the historic neighbourhood to be given a listed status? Having to obtain planning permission is therefore highly likely, and choosing an architect who understands the surrounding context is invaluable!
