Nestled on a quite, residential street in Epsom, our client having recently purchased this property envisioned a grand living space and thoughtful layout to enhance his family’s day-to day. 

By completing an expansive 8-meter single-story rear extension, we accomplished a premium, ready-to-move-in outcome, assisting them in realizing their objectives.

The Brief

The original property stood as a 5-bedroom detached residence, spanning two stories and boasting a sizable rear garden. Despite its outward dimensions, internally, the rooms were compact and lacked cohesion, posing a challenge for our client’s large family.

Drawing on his engineering background, our collaboration began by crafting the initial concept and refining the brief. Together, we envisioned expansive areas capitalizing on the southern exposure of the garden, integrating architectural glazing, and optimizing ceiling heights to impart a sense of spaciousness.

Central to the vision was meeting the family’s specific needs. With a household of seven, it was paramount that each member had their own space while also facilitating communal gatherings around the dinner table. Additionally, the playroom required versatility, capable of both seclusion and integration with the main living area, guiding our initial layout sketches.

Our Solution

In order to achieve the goal of maximising internal space, we split the planning process into 2 key stages:
i) Prior approval for 8m beyond the original house;
ii) Householder planning for the remaining 5m infill extension.

Once planning had been secured, a relatively smooth process with our specialist team, we got to work on the technical design and tender pack. This saw the details pieced together for the optimum result, aimed at controlling both the project budget and end results.

In turn, construction was a breeze, with the contractors able to use the detailed manual we had put together to build the whole extension as intended. The final piece of the puzzle was to crane in the sunken hot-tub, an absolute spectacle that would make the neighbours jealous!

Summary of Works

As construction neared completion, the last touches were applied, including snagging and obtaining certificates as needed. Witnessing the entire family’s joyous reaction during their inaugural visit to their new abode was truly heartwarming. It marked yet another triumphant project, leaving another satisfied client eager to embark on their fresh chapter in their new residence.
