Our clients called us to transform the ground floor of their 4 storey town house in Northwood. The brief was to completely refurbish the space, change the stairs, and convert part of the old garage and utility room to a new master bedroom.
The house is in a quiet road in Northwood, North-West London with a beautiful garden that was not being made the most of. Our design opens the back of the house and adds a glass box extension. This makes more space for the new bedroom and brings the garden in as a feature of the space.
The glass box extension has minimal frame sliding glass doors giving direct access out on to a new deck in the garden. We secured planning permission from Hillingdon for the glass box extension design and other changes to the house.
Inside the house the floor is replaced with a new insulated reinforced concrete structure with under-floor heating. The new floor finish is a beautiful seamless resin to the entire ground floor. The design also includes new open riser stairs with clear glass edge.
The new bedroom has an en-suite bath and is fitted with sliding wardrobes to give great storage space. At night, an electric blind can be dropped on the edge of the glass box extension to give privacy in the room.
The design also creates a separate access to the garden from the hall. This has a large custom-made boots and cloaks cupboard where coats and shoes can be easily hidden away and stored.
