planning approval for creation of new garden room with all-day terrace

approved mid 2019 due on site spring 2020

an existing slightly dark modern bungalow is to be transformed with alterations to a limited portion of the existing structure and the creation of a new high ceiling, top lit garden room pavillion.

Gary created multiply design options in 3D with project animations to illustrate how the proposed alterations would look both internally and externally for consideration by the client.

rooflights and new extra high glazed doors to the south elevation of the new space frees up existing floor space for additional bedroom and study accomodation with the new garden lounge being fully open plan to the existing kitchen and dining area of the retained dwelling.

under construction late 2019 alterations and extensions to listed dwelling house

the client wished to improve the functionality and increase the size of the existing kitchen in the Category 'C' listed building.

Gary's proposed design solution sought to retain as much of the existing dwellings stonework walls as possible while opening up both the new and existing dwelling to the west; creation of new full height glazd terrace doors allows the new lounge space to flow seamlessly onto the new external evening terrace.

After both planning approval and listed building consent were achieve in late October 2018, Building Warrant for the works was achieved in two weeks in earlier February 2019.

site commencement late 2019 for alterations and extensions to existing steading

the client wished to upgrade and expand their existing house into a previously undeveloped portion of the existing steading building.

planning and building warrant approvals granted for works throughout 2018-19 with staged completion of the works subject to client specific requirements.

using wherever possible existing openings together with sensitively designed additions and variations to section of delapidated roof structure, the new design was able to add 5 bedrooms and additional living space to create a light and spacious family home on the site.

the variable floor level inside the house and a similarly variable external landscape provided the opportunity to open up new views from the existing dwelling while isolating it from the roadway adjacent to the site boundary.

due for completion early 2020 stunning contemporary design proves to be the acceptable interpretation of the box dormer

the need to use the full extent of the existing cottage footprint, led Gary to the development of this timber clad dormer window as full roof replacment to the building.

vertical timber boarded cladding with a transluscent grey stain combine with end wall sloping wings, to provide the backdrop for glazed 'juliet' balcony windows to both new bedrooms and varying window heights to the new bathroom to allow external views from both shower and bath.

Site works now commenced with completion expected by mid-2019.
