Kew Gardens – Residential Extension and Refurbishment

Extension and extensive remodelling of 5 bedroom semi-detached house

Client Brief: The client desired to extend and completely remodel the interiors of this 5 bedroom house in Kew Gardens.

Solution: Our solution replaced the original rear ground floor conservatories which looked cluttered with a full-width modern extension, compromising sliding aluminium doors to the garden.  A side extension and loft conversion were also incorporated into the design to produce a simple, yet modern rear elevation (see before and after images below).  A canopy provides much-needed shade in the summer and shelter when raining.  The interiors were extensively remodelled, making best use of internal space, maximising movement around the house and improving all aspects of the house.  The design achieved a functional, spacious and flowing layout ideal for a modern professorial family.
