Project Cost £400k-£500k
Existing / Proposed Footprint: 248m² (2,669ft²) / 367m² (3,950ft²)
The owners of this existing 4 bedroom house on a small city
centre plot needed to increase and enhance accommodation
whilst updating its external appearance. The existing
property was built in 1950s and finished in red brick and
render external walls with a tiled pitched roof. The property
fills the width of its plot and sits close to the neighbouring
properties on both sides that also have a comparable mass,
bulk and height. We were engaged to find an appropriate
design solution to meet the challenging brief.
The chosen design solution utilised a mansard roof shape in
order to create as much additional floor space as possible
to a new second storey. This roof form also kept the overall
height of the finished design to a minimum in order to
obtain planning permission. The additional storey creates a
large flexible open plan leisure space and a large bedroom
overlooking the rear garden. The relocation of a bedroom
on the first floor allows for the 3 remaining bedrooms to be
increased in size all with en­suite bathrooms and dressing
areas. Further internal remodelling allows natural light
to penetrate through the property into the centre of the
footprint by forming voids in floor to circulations spaces.
Externally to the rear contemporary appearance has been
created using a mixture red brick to match the existing
house, white render and large expanses of glass. The 2nd
storey gable to the new mansard roof has been set back to
break up the mass and the roof verge has been finished with
galvanised steel edging to create a crisp outline.
The end result pulls the existing aging building into the 21st
century and now provides luxury accommodation and an
individually designed dwelling for the owners to be proud of.
