Our client wanted a Kingston architect to help with design and single storey extension planning for their London property in KT3. The house also has a dormer loft conversion, so this was a nice additional space for them. The scope of the project was for a single storey rear extension and internal reconfigurations.
Later we were asked to prepare building regulations drawings for the Building Control Department. These are on a tighter scale than planning application drawings [1:10-1:20 vs 1:50-1:100], and include more detail such as foundations, steels and insulation.
The façade faces a triangular green, creating a village feel in this London suburb. Moreover, the roads are not on a grid system but are meandering curves and triangles, enhancing the country aspect.

German Kitchen Designs
A very popular request is for kitchen extension ideas, and we will shortly be launching a dynamic new product which is to supply German kitchen designs. This way we can now supply the kitchens after we design the kitchen extensions. We are actually building a black stone kitchen showroom as part of our offices, which will be a great visual aid when our clients come to visit. Even if it is just a side return extension you would like, that will add a beautiful contemporary feature which lets in lots of natural daylight.
