Project: House extension & refurbishment
Contractor: BSV Construction Ltd
The Client's brief was to extend this dated 1930s house to provide additional living space for a growing family, giving it a much needed facelift and enhancing its thermal properties in the process.
The original property comprised a detached 3-bed house with red brickwork, slap dash render and pvc windows. Full planning permission was acquired to extend to the side over two floors. The Client was very keen on an 'Art Deco' appearance and the transformation included features such as Crittal windows including curved glass, external walls rendered in white and the old roof replaced with green clay tiles. In her report the planning officer described the proposals as 'unique' and that they 'would have a positive visual impact on the street scene'.
