Double Storey Wrap Around Side Extension, Loft Conversion & Porch


For our clients at 188 Rochester Drive, Bexley we undertook a complete Architectural Design Services package, to design a wrap-around double-story extension. The property had a garage at the rear of the property that was removed to make space for the extension. Going around the side and 4m into the garden the living space is extended by a significant amount. The rear walls of the kitchen were removed to connect to the extension allowing for a large and ornate open plan kitchen. The additional space also allows for the dining room to be incorporated into the design allowing for a grand kitchen diner, fitted with an island unit and a set of bi-folding doors allowing access into the garden whilst allowing for natural light to enter the kitchen. The remaining space on the ground floor is used to create a utility room, that houses a boiler used for the new underfloor heating, and a new ground floor bathroom. On the second floor, the new space is used to create a study, with a view out the front of the house, and a master bedroom equipped with an en-suite bathroom. Additionally, the property also underwent a loft conversion allowing for another two bedrooms with en-suites, and an extra storage room. The entire property is designed by modernizing the traditional house design, with large glass features that are prominent in the extension and a larger focus on flat spaces rather than traditional pitched roofs.
