Single Storey Extension


For our clients, at 63 Abbotsbury Close, we designed a single-story extension and internal conversion for a traditional Victorian house in the heart of Chelsea. The planning and designing of this project took several turns before even getting to any designs due to the limitations of the council on the project. This is because the property is firstly a protected property in a conservation area, meaning that any work done on the exterior of the property would have to be minimal. Secondly, any extension would have to respect the neighbor's access to natural light, leading to the same conclusion that the work done would have to be minimal in scope. Therefore, our architects worked on designing a small extension at the rear of the property but focused their attention on an internal conversion that would redistribute the space inside more efficiently.

The final extension was a 3m single-story rear extension connected from the kitchen, with the additional space used to extend the kitchen space and create a new utility room.  The house was given a general modern and minimalist remodel, with large redesigns in the kitchen and the utility room. The two bathrooms were given similar modern retouches with the ground floor bathroom having an additional basin added. The rooms upstairs were changed with the intention to maximize natural light intake, therefore the hallway had a roof window installed above and the two bedrooms were given a Juliette balcony.
