Re-conversion of two apartments to single dwelling with new and enlarged extension / garden room

Converting two flats to a single dwelling reduced construction VAT to 5% and regained PD rights.

A planning appeal was won, establishing that a parapet roof does not have eaves, allowed the extension to vary from 3 – 4m in height.

The deep plan and level changes between lounge and garden generated a design with an intricate section and roof as light-scoop at the centre of the plan.

Zenithal light drawn from high up above the ceilings changes throughout the day and seasons. An open and fluid space was created with structural supports used to provide visual separation of the kitchen from the lounge and garden room.

Materials are contemporary: metal windows, single ply roofing and Danish Petersen bricks, sympathetic to the existing brick used at the rear. A new porch and timber windows are in keeping with the streetscape.
