Our clients wanted a new, spacious kitchen in their late Victorian property and asked us to design a ground floor side return extension. In addition to the kitchen extension, the clients asked us to draw up plans for a loft conversion which would include a new master bedroom with an en suite.
Although the loft conversion was allowed under permitted development laws, full planning consent was needed for the kitchen extension. Lambeth is a notoriously tricky borough in which to secure planning consent, but with 20 years of experience working in the borough we secured planning approval for a side return extension.
The extension incorporates a strip of frameless glass which runs from floor to ceiling at a right angle to the side of the house, ensuring maximum light penetration at all times of day. Bi-fold folding doors open onto a large terrace from the dining area.
