Delighted to be appointed to carry out works to the unique rural chalet-bungalow. With stunning views to 3 sides of the property it is easy to see why the client would want to invest in extending and altering this property due to its fabulous location! We are looking to make external alterations by way of an extension to form a new living / kitchen area and internal alterations to make the space flow more comfortably.

WOKINGHAM : IN FOR PLANNING

At ATELIER GUY Architecture we do a lot of planning applications for single-storey rear extensions for good reason. They are a cost effective way to add a lot of floor space on to your property relatively cost-effectively and are easy to get through the planning system due to their unobtrusive nature.

We have just submitted this application to Wokingham Council for a single-storey rear extension to a 1930's end terrace house. With such a standard ground floor layout of living, dining and small gallery kitchen by adding a vaulted kitchen and family room to the end of the property allows for a much needed ground floor WC and utility room to house the back up areas but of course the key feature being floor to ceiling glazing to allow light to flood throughout the property. Perfect!

If you are planning a single-storey extension please give me a call or email and I would be happy to discuss this for you.

NEW APPOINTMENT : FARNHAM

ATELIER GUY Architecture is delighted to be appointed to carry out extension works and internal alterations to the stunning, and quite large, chalet bungalow in Farnham, Surrey. The dwelling sits in a substaintial green-belt plot with an awkward internal layout sprawled out unconventionally which makes it hard to use on a daily basis. Our client is looking to undertake conversions, extensions and several alterations watch this space as to further progress!

​VIRGINIA WATER : IN FOR PLANNING

ATELIER GUY is delighted to have lodged a planning application for a single-storey rear extension to a detached property in Viriginia Water. The existing dwelling is relatively new-build property but the layouts a tad awkward in their use with the kitchen (the focus point of any property) at the front which does not interact with the rear garden or the living area to the rear.

The new layout addresses these issues by switching extending to the rear to allow for a large open-plan kitchen / family room that has a more logical connection with the existing living room. Converting the kitchen in to a home-office is becoming a desirable must-have in to days climate. To increase the feeling of space in to the new extension this has been achieve by vaulting the ceiling with roof-lights over and large bi-fold doors to the new garden.
Let’s hope for a positive result!

SITE VISIT : LONDON

Works are progressing well to our project in Merton, London. We are extending the rear of a Victorian dwelling to increase its footprint to the ground floor. The existing layout always has a small gallery-type kitchen so by extending out to the rear this gives an opportunity to allow for a flexible family, kitchen ad work space. By vaulting the entire ceiling to the extension this allows for as much natural light to flood in as possible and of course gives a double-height space at no extra cost construction wise. 

Re-layout of 1930's house - a quick sketch

A quick on-the-spot design sketch to explore what could be done with a 1930'a house before purchase.

This sort of layout is classically repeated up and down the UK for good reason; the layouts already work. However, with a bit of messing around and a quick re-layout the entire ground floor can be re-organised to allow for a large family room to the rear with an individual formal living room!

Loft Conversions

Loft conversions are aways tricky and more complicated than they look. There are several factors that must be taken in to consideration such as clear headroom from the top of floor joists in the loft, clear headroom and the ability to allow for a new staircase form first to second floor. With this the angle of the new staircase comes in to consideration, the pitch of the stairs and the minimum rise and goings of each staircase and fire resistance!

Any planning drawings must take in to consideration compliance firstly. We, at Atelier Guy Architecture, can help you navigate this minefield of a loft conversion!
