We have recently submitted an planning application to double the footprint of a detached 1950s house in St Albans.
We looking to increase the house from 3 to 6 bedrooms with additional living space and space for working for home for our client.
Works are progressing well to a detached 1930s house to create a modern 2 storey side and rear extension. The last part of the existing roof has been removed and now time to put it all back together! Tin hat's on top so bring on the rain -it won't stop building work.
New commission in St Albans to remodel a 1950s detached house by extending double storey to the side and rear, and completely refurbishing the interior to modern living standards to create a comfortable family home.
We have been appointed to look at creating a contemporary 2 storey rear extension to this 1950's Wates construction house in St Albans. The client wants to create an extension which contrasts with the existing house.
The black zinc cladding has finally been installed and protective coating removed. Voila!
A recent trip to the city of Brugge in Belgium revealed some amazing contemporary domestic architecture. Some of which resides in a UNESCO world heritage site. Love the use of materials and form.
What a great source of inspiration!
We've been commissioned to apply for listed building consent to works to the external facades of this Grade II listed former stables. Lovely to be working on an unique building with centuries of history.
Phase 2 is so near completing now, and the 1st time the tiled floor has been seen in its entirety!
After last week's cold spell the paving has been installed. All that's left now is the zinc cladding and hey presto we're done on this beautiful rear extension.
Love the yellow slimline steel columns which match up to the kitchen island metal frame.
I like to attend trade shows to not only check out the latest innovations but also get design inspiration.
My first discovery was this honeycomb style plastic screen by surface matters a bit like rodeca (think LABAN centre in South London). Could be used as a internal screen with an element of privacy depending on where you stand and move about.
Secondly for a project where the client wants a minimalist look including polished concrete floor. This concrete finish by Design Concrete is applied like plaster and may be a cost effective approach to get the look they want.
And finally by Lathams timber various funky coloured veneers. I want at all. Could be a cost effective approach to spray painted or lacquered fitted furniture. I'm also thinking we could utilise this for desks in our new office fit out, more likely in a less striking colour.
Getting close to completing. Sliding doors and rooflight finally in which means internal works are now full steam ahead.
Beautiful mosaic tiled floor to the master bathroom by Original Style Odyssey range supplied by BC Ceramics.
We have lighting! Not that we need it with such an expanse of glazing. Love the Heals pedant lighting. 123 Flooring ployfor installation due to commence early next week. 1.2x0.6m Marshals Paving delivered today. Fingers crossed for a warm spell to lay it next week.
The main house is watertight, and frameless rooflight glazing has been installed. The rooflights are electrically operated with rain sensors and will cool the space when the hot summer months are here through convection currents.
Can you have too much roof glazing?
We say no! 2 projects with a total of 12sqm of frameless roof glazing.
Brighting up those spaces on a dark winter's day.
Minimal framed glazing installation complete. Look at that lovely framed view.
Levelling compound laid for the glossy vinyl flooring to go down onto. Walls have 2 coats of paint on.
One of trademark design solutions. Installing the kitchen worktop into the window recess to create more worktop space. You can never have enough worktop! Lapitec worktop and kitchen installation by Bramptons interiors.
New year off to a flying start. The Zinc cladding arrived today all ready to be formed into panels for the external cladding. Excited to be working with Roles Broderick on the this installation.
Our biggest expanse of glazing to date coming in at over 7m long and consists of 3 sliding doors to provide a minimum of glazing break ups versus maximum opening area. The glazed roof is due to be installed Jan 2019.
Amazing light show at RHS Wisley Glow. Fabulous neon lighting, just what you need for a long dark winter.
Aluminium powder coated side sliding sectional garage door by Hormann installed.
Don't be afraid to add a vibrant colour to create a feature wall, like this dividing screen between a walk in wardrobe and bedroom. Here we used Farrow and Ball Vardo.
