Our clients had lived in this modern house in Highgate for a few years when they contacted us. They had a growing family and the house was in need of refurbishment.
We played around with design ideas, and came up with a solution that gave them more space and added value. The concept was for a ground floor extension to add living space, and a second floor extension to add a bedroom.
As well as the extensions, the house was refurbished from top to bottom. We used insulated render and new windows to make the house much warmer, and cut energy use.
The house is in the Highgate Conservation Area, so our clients were happy that we got approval first go.
We carefully planned all of the structural changes to the house, which have opened the space to the garden. The result is a living space that is much more bright and spacious.
The finished house includes a great new kitchen and pantry, as well as an extra shower and boot room on the ground floor. We also redesigned the staircase to be more open, with oak treads and glass edges, adding light to the space.
