WOKING : STAIRCASE FINISHED

Delighted to see my design for a grand staircase to a brand new 5000 sq foot house in Surrey finally being finished by my developer client! It’s always lovely seeing design drawings that can easily be understood translate in to a physical product. Very pleased indeed.

This is the design drawing and finished photos below.

NEW APPOINTMENT : MONKWOOD, HAMPSHIRE

I am delighted to have been appointed to carry out extensions and internal alterations to a lovely isolated dwelling in Monkwood, Hampshire. The property has the most stunning views across the South Downs National Park and the objective is to secure these views within the extensions put forward. A further objective is to re-design the internal space to ensure both living and kitchen areas are more connected.

An exciting project to become involved in. 

SHEPPERTON : BUILDING REGS IN

I have submitted a full building regulations application for a two storey side and rear extension to a substantial semi-detached property in Shepperton, Surrey. Once a planning application has been submitted and approved it's important to convert these drawings in to a legal set of construction drawings. 

Building Regulation Drawings are a set of detailed drawings and construction details that are submitted to the local building control department and go into much more detail than the planning application drawings. They incorporate structural information from the engineer, thermal insulation calculations and proof of full compliance with all relevant sections of the Building Regulations. They also include enough information for a contractor to accurately price as well as detailed set of construction specification notes and full product specific information to allow the contractor to price and ultimately build from.

Not many architects are able to do these drawings for you, so it is always best to employ someone who can do both the planning and building regs drawings to prevent messing around with two professional appointments!

DESIGN PROPOSALS : CROWTHORNE, BERKSHIRE

I am delighted to have put forward a couple of design schemes for a single-storey rear and side extension for a semi-detached house in Crowthorne, Berkshire.

The ground floor layout, like many semis in the UK, are typical of the era in that a formal living room and a kitchen / diner to the rear has slowly become too small for everyday use. The extensions explore pushing out to the rear to allow for a large family / dining / kitchen room with back up areas with the added benefit of this dwelling a large area to the side can also be used to allow for further extensions.

Two options were put forward for review, one being a more traditional extension with parapet and coping stones, and the other a more modern option with cedar cladding and large overhanging roofs with downlighters. Pretty much the same result, just two different ways to clad it!

​FARNHAM : PLANNING APPROVAL GRANTED

One of the trickiest planning applications I have dealt with in a long time but, finally, I have secured full-plans approval for alterations to this stunning Dutch-style dwelling in Farnham, Surrey.

With so much to consider with the works to this dwelling such as Green-belt restrictions, Conservation Area approval and the actual issues with the site location itself I consider this a firm result! The original application had to be reduced down by 20% and re-application put in due to previous applications not being declared and thus went over the allowed Green-Belt restrictions but working closely with conservation at Farnham BC, we agreed on a final result and it only took six months!

Now on to the building regulations drawings, which at 4000 sq foot of property – this is no easy task J

DESIGN SCHEMES PUT FORWARD : CROWTHORNE

We have put together a couple of design options for our project in Crowthorne, Berkshire. The property is a large detached dwelling on a clever plot that is not over-looked by others, and my clients wanted to extend their property to allow for more downstairs space. As the garden is relatively compact extending to the rear wasn't really an option.

By extending to the front of the dwelling instead and a bit of replanning internally, we were able to achieve a similar result! Two alternatives were considered, with one vaulting the roof to the front and another by incorporating two smaller extensions with a lower hipped roof design.

Design options below!

NEW APPOINTMENT : WARFIELD, BERKSHIRE.

I'm delighted to have been appointed to extend a detached property in Warfield, Berkshire. My client is looking to increase the size of both the ground floor and first floor to increase their living space. Although the property has a decent sized footprint, a couple of the bedrooms are relatively small and the ground floor needs increasing to allow for a larger family and kitchen area. 

With an interesting plot that is stepped down and space to the left and rear, this has potential to be an interesting project scheme-wise!

​NEW APPOINTMENT : CROWTHORNE : BERKSHIRE

I am delighted to have been appointed to an extend a semi-detached property in Crowthorne, Berkshire. My client is looking to extend to the rear and side of their property to create a more-open plan living area with all important utility / storage to serve.

It seems to be the more the norm at the moment with people spending more time at their house due to lockdown and realising it’s worth investing in their house as apposed to the high costs of moving.
I look forward to putting together a schemes for consideration in due course!
