marlborough road, richmond

after a long preparation period, we have finally started site works on this 5-storey townhouse mimicking the neighbouring property we completed around five years ago. the former garage to the front will be replaced by a sizeable utility room with a separate entrance from the front drive which is also connected to the open plan kitchen and dining room. a guest toilet and boiler room is located underneath the external stairs, with a modern open tread staircase leading to the upper hallway. a new study will form part of the side extension on the upper floor with access from the through lounge next to the main entrance hall. the upper floors will be renovated, windows upgraded and insulated where necessary whilst the building will be fitted with a modern heating system. a small balcony on top of the new flat roof structure at ground floor level will enable views over the sizeable rear garden. the project is projected to be completed end of 2020.

friars stile road, richmond

we just received planning approval for the conversion of this semi-detached town house within the richmond conservation area for a two-storey rear extension complementing the completed extension of the neighbouring home as well as redesign of lower and upper ground floor as well as first floor levels. once finished, the rear reception room will open up as a gallery to the void of the tall rear extension with a stand alone sculptural staircase leading down to kitchen and dining. the front entertainment room opens up to the new light well, the rear terrace projects further into the long garden connected by gentle wide natural stone steps. this project is planned to go on site end of may 2020. 

onslow road, richmond

following the successful conversion of a townhouse in marlborough road, we applied for a two-storey infill extension to the side of this property with replacement of the traditional upper ground floor timber framed conservatory with a modern frameless glass extension. the lower ground floor has been completely redesigned with an open plan kitchen area to the front and dining and informal living to the rear whilst we opened the rear facade introducing large sliding doors. the outdoor terrace has been widened and will be covered with portland stone as both cheeks of the rear facade whilst implementing a new retaining wall with glazed balustrades and stairs to the upper level rear garden. a new sliding gate secures the redesigned resin bonded driveway, the facade has been chemically cleaned and repainted where needed.

grantham house, leatherhead

we have recently completed a feasibility study to the develop an apartment scheme for 24 apartments to the rear of an existing former office building facing north street, leatherhead. the proposal will result in a contemporary extension to the existing brick facing structure with the intention to introduce a well balanced scheme to this site whilst its design language creates a link between the modern commercial structure to the west and the historical buildings lining bridge street to the south.

sandy lane, richmond

we are currently designing a sizeable recreational spa retreat to the rear garden of a large property in richmond, featuring a gym, a sauna and steam room, a toilet facility, a relaxation room and a separate office space at the rear. the summer room has windows to overlook the adjacent play area with a sunken trampoline. the u-shaped structure forms an internal roof protected courtyard  with a sunken hot tub. large sliding doors open towards a full width terrace in front connecting to the 11m long open pool area. this garden pavilion will be constructed from a timber laminated prefabricated structure. solid walls are clad in dark vertical timber, contrasting with the lightness of fixed frameless glass and framed sliding doors and windows. a metal canopy and vertical timber fins provide shading and layering to the facades. the project will be implemented during summer 2021.
