Coombe / Kingston Architect Project - Residential extension, extensive remodelling, refurbishment of detached house in Coombe.

Project Overview

QUBED selected as the architect for this stunning detached home in Kingston Upon Thames / Coombe.

Client Brief

The client was seeking a Kingston Upon Thames Architect for the comprehensive remodelling and refurbishment of a beautiful Edwardian detached house. Their vision includes a ground floor side infill extension, carefully crafted to seamlessly integrate with the existing structure. While modernization is paramount, the wanted to preserve the charm and character of the home’s front-facing formal reception rooms and traditional features. The new house is intended to be a long-term family home.

Original Property

The Edwardian country house is located in Coombe, Kingston Upon Thames. The site falls within a conservation area. The existing house has a floor area of 540 square meters.


This refurbishment project entails reconfiguring the rear ground floor alongside the addition of a contemporary side infill extension, enriching the living experience with spacious open-plan areas and unobstructed vistas of the meticulously landscaped garden, facilitated by frameless fixed glazing. Meticulously attending to detail, proportion, and scale, our design ethos ensures a layout that seamlessly harmonizes with and honors the inherent character of the original structure.

Key Features

  • New projecting flat roof on the extension is designed to provide some shading and create a lightweight feel.
  • The new frameless glazing connects the inner spaces to the beautiful garden.
  • The design intention was to maintain a visual distinction between the existing building and the new addition. The proposed extension complements the existing house without detracting from the original historical fabric.
  • The heart of the house; the kitchen and informal living spaces overlook the garden. The modern kitchen uses the highest quality materials and technologies to create cutting-edge furniture and exceptional interiors that reflect the unique personality and lifestyle of the client.
