This project is another classic Richmond Hill townhouse in need of extension and refurbishment. We gained planning approval to remove the rear balcony at upper ground floor level in order to add a single storey extension to the rear of the property. A spacious terrace in front creates useful outdoor seating with wide sandstone steps leading up to the elevated rear garden level. Behind the widened side entrance sits a small entrance lobby with cloaks and seating bench next to a well organised utility room with a guest toilet behind underneath the external main entrance stairs. The existing floor level has been lowered to create an open plan kitchen dining and lounge area with a modern staircase leading to the upper level. The formal through reception has been redesigned and all upper bedrooms and bathrooms refurbished with a new en-suite added to the master’s bedroom. ‘Haus and Hof’ were the interior designers with us on this project. Completion is expected end of this year.
We are currently designing a new detached four-bedroom family dwelling with a full basement for family living, gym and utility and plant as well as storage room on a slightly sloping site in a conservation area. The proportions of the proposed building and chosen materials mimic the surrounding family homes on the upper floors with a glazed plinth at ground level to invite daylight into the building and connect with the garden space.
We have been commissioned to design a detached four-bedroom family home with a connected annex building as a guest wing as well as a home office with gym and adjacent double garage. A natural swimming pond and sun covered outdoor kitchen area will be part of the new terraced landscaped garden. We are preparing the scheme for planning submission after Christmas.
