Our clients bought this house in East Finchley to be their family home. It was in need of a full refurbishment, and our clients had some ambitious ideas for extensions. The brief was to add large side and rear extensions, and to convert the loft to add 2 bedrooms.
We had a challenge to get over the local planning policy, for such a large amount of work. Our planning expertise allowed us to come up with a solution. This involved a mix of Permitted Development and Planning approvals. It worked and we achieved full permission.
Our design for the rear extension creates a fantastic family space with 7m wide sliding glass doors. The space opens completely on to the garden in the summer.
We designed the roof extensions to maximise space in the bedrooms, and created an extra bathroom.
The energy use of the house has been reduced with new timber windows and insulated render.
The interior design of the house is a feature of the project. We planned the position and colour of each tile in the bathroom to ensure the pattern was right.
