We have just been granted planning and conservation area approval to extend and convert an existing flat into 2 separate dwellings with a loft conversion and roof terrace. This is the 5th job with our client, a residential developer.
Building work is due to commence early 2019.
We were commissioned to carry out the detailed design for a badly configured semi detached house which suffered from low ceilings, a lack of natural light and oddly sized bedrooms.
The scheme was a 2 storey side and rear extension with 2 separate single storey infills.
The result is a brightly lit open plan ground floor top lit with contemporary roof lanterns, 4 good sized bedrooms, a separate home office and playroom. The ground floor has underfloor heating installed with Porcelain tiles on top to give a warm feel during those cold winter days.
Internal doors: Todds Doors.
External bifolds doors: Aluminium powder coated by Origin.

We were commissioned back in 2015 to transform a poorly laid out ground floor flat into a vibrant modern 2 bedroom flat. The addition of a modest side extension and some internal remodelling has brought life back into this space for homeowner and property journalist, Jo Knowsley.
Glad to see 2 years after completion our client is loving that transformation.
"Christine Peever came to me to rescue a project left by another architect. She drew immaculate plans, helped me obtain planning permission, and worked closely with my builders to ensure the result was fabulous. She is efficient, charming, imaginative and was extremely kind in the way she dealt with me. Her work was exemplary and I would happily use her again - in fact I have already used her on two projects in my home." Jo Knowsley.

Look! St Albans - Civic Centre Opportunity Site Design Charrette.
Andrew Sheldon of Sheldon Peever Studio joined the team of external facilitators led by Angela Koch of ImaginePlaces, to assist with the design charrette for the Civic Centre opportunity site in St Albans.
Look! St Albans were requested by ‘The Partnership’, comprising St Albans City and District Council Community Services, Herts Constabulary, NHS, and Boultbee LDN (owners of The Maltings) to host a design charrette on the Civic Centre Opportunity Site. The charrette took place over 3 days in September 2016, with a reporting session later that month.
More than 160 people attended the sessions, which produced a series of detailed reports and emerging concept plans that will inform the future character of the site.
Andrew provided 3D modelling and GIS analysis to support the participants, as well as providing material for the final reports.
Look! St Albans with ImaginePlaces and the CCOS Development Partnership were shortlisted as Finalists for the RTPI’s Awards for Planning Excellence 2017.
Here is a short video from the charrette.
Here is an article on The Herts Advertiser about the charrette,
Planning and conservation area consent has been successfully granted for a highly contentious rear and side extension to a locally listed Victorian High Gothic house in the St Albans conservation area. The property sits on a prominent corner site within a stone's throw of the new development at Gabriel Square. Considerable consultation with the planning department has taken place to secure planning permission.
The scheme looks to maximise the footprint and natural light opportunities to the existing north westerly facing basement by introducing a south facing extension with substantial glazing to minimise reducing the existing garden which is of limited size.
Building work is due to commence in 2019.
The steel frame is nearing completion.
It has been designed to cantilever over the glazing so as to create an uninterrupted view of the garden. The only clue to this extensive steel frame are 2 slender circular columns inside which will be painted bright yellow to match the kitchen.
We have been granted planning permission for a substantial 2 storey side and rear extension and loft conversion to an existing 1950's semi detached housed in the village of Wheathampstead.
Work is now underway preparing the detailed design drawings for tendering.
Building works are due to commence 2019.
We have been asked to look at extending an existing property to create a better relationship to the garden and reconfiguring the internal layout for modern living. The existing small kitchen has been extended to the front and living room/bedroom swapped.
Planning approval is due in December and work starting on site in 2019.
A planning and conservation area consent application has been submitted to convert a single 2 bedroom flat into 2 separate self contained 1 bedroom flats with a loft extension, rear extension and roof terrace.
The property sits within the Highgate conservation area.
