If you wonder what I do please read this!

I am often asked what I do as an Architect. There are a few parts of what people have in their mind’s eye that are spot on. But it is nice to show people from time to time.

Digital Sketches are one of the first stages of helping clients to understand the look of their project

At the practice we were recently contacted by a Channel 4 show asking if we had any projects that could feature. We were flattered, but there are a few ducks that still need to line up before this can happen from planning appeal decisions to final client funding being in place. These are all things that we are happy to support clients through in an effort to secure their perfect homes.

It is good in the early stages to have plan sketches to map out your ambitions

This was a great opportunity to reflect on what we have recently built and what we are hoping to realise onsite once the constraints have been removed.

These two projects are the most popular images that prospective clients are referencing on the Houzz website when contacting us.

Project One

Tolworth Rise North (8/16192/HOU) was a single storey rear extension, pergola and decking, rear dormer roof extension and front side and rear roof lights with new door and window to the side at  ground floor. It created a nicely flowing set of family and entertainment area and extra bedrooms for the growing family and guests.

Project Two

Hookfield (20/00956/FLH) was two storey side and rear extension. It gave the client the opportunity to add extra bedrooms with ensuites. However the client seized the opportunity to embrace the new volume they had created to have a 2 storey atrium to the rear of the property which allows the eye to wander from the kitchen table from the garden to the clouds in one seamless motion. They also benefited from the atrium at 1st floor level with a a glazed internal balcony that accessed the atrium to get 2 storey sunrise and sunset views with all the daylight hues in between. 

Room with a 2 storey view.

Hoping to realise on site

The next two projects are the next cohort of exciting project that we hope will make it to site in their entirety. They have built on the successes of previous projects but have allowed us to flex our design muscles. 

Project Three

West Hurstgate (PLAN/2022/1125) is a large contemporary styled extension, contextually sensitive, with traditional materiality, to a large traditional house that will feature a gym, golf simulator, pool table and bar as well as occasional use spare bedrooms with balconies and a sun terrace; it is to be the couples entertainment and wellbeing wing. 

Have it all health, fitness, space and views.

Project Four

Fountain Drive (DM2022/01596) is a smaller angled contemporary extension which is part of a grander and comprehensive renovation. This has already begun at loft level. The masterplan of the main site on which the property is sited was formerly the Queen Mary’s Children’s Hospital which was one of the largest in Europe. The client has decided to theme key elements of the renovation to provide light, airy modern bedrooms for their children with floor to ceiling glazed dormers. At ground level is the creation of an Oriel window seat created in a way to allow parent and child storytime or a light, bright reading nook.

The best dormer with large glazing framing the view and connection to the inside and out.
