This project is a roof extension to add an additional floor to an existing private mews house (circa 1980). The existing mews house is a two storey white painted rendered semi-detached dwelling with a similar pair of dwellings set immediately behind to the east. The homeowner\u00a0has lived in the area for a number of years. He likes the area and the house and is keen to stay, but requires additional space to make the property suitable for his current needs. It is not possible to extend the property outwards. The adjacent buildings to the south and west are three storeys […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

We were asked to assess the feasibility of re-locating an existing language school to a new premises within Eastbourne and converting the existing building into residential apartments. The existing building is within a conservation area not far from the town center, and is a prominent double gable-fronted brick built detached 4 storey Victorian building set within a generous garden with a number of mature trees.

Hardcastle Architects were appointed to design a side return kitchen extension to this large Victorian terraced house in Lower Clapton, East London. A new steel structural frame was installed to remove the existing side and rear walls of the kitchen. This provided a much larger open plan kitchen with space for a large dining table, some soft seating, a WC and small utility room. The majority of the side extension roof over the dining table was glazed to ensure the kitchen and rear reception rooms enjoyed good levels of natural light. The garden elevation was fully glazed with a minimally […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Loft conversion with rear dormer extension recently completed in Walthamstow E17, East London to create a\u00a0master bedroom space with ensuite. Loft conversions are a\u00a0cost effective way to extend a house\u00a0if the existing\u00a0roof is suitable and the ridge\u00a0high enough. For this project the loft floor and ceiling to the 1st floor bedrooms below had to be\u00a0lowered\u00a0as the existing roof space was marginally too low. A full width dormer extension\u00a0carried out under permitted development rules was added to the rear and a certificate of lawfulness secured (to avoid potential future conveyancing problems). A large window and rooflight together with light coloured finishes […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>
