We were asked to design a rear extension and a loft conversion for a traditional Victorian terraced house that was built into a steep hillside overlooking a valley. The challenge was to create a natural link between the house and the garden which was situated on several levels and up a steep slope. The spectacular countryside that surrounds the property was a key focus of our design and build process.
After completing a rear extension for these clients they then asked us back to do a loft conversion. The trick here was to increase the light and landing space on the first floor, build a new staircase and add two rooms with skylights and cleverly hidden storage solutions
This is an exciting new build overlooking the top of Matlock with fantastic views towards Riber. The original bungalow was demolished and replaced by a Timber Frame and stone extension.
A technically complex project due to a range of Conservation issues, structural openings and poor Victorian foundations on the existing building. We built a temporary kitchen while the job was in progress so our clients would have as little disruption as possible. The final result is a beautiful kitchen extension, making the most of the views over the valley, giving access into the garden and creating a much larger, lighter space for the family kitchen/dining area.
The clients wanted an extension which we could see straightaway was beyond their budget. But what we also saw was a fantastic loft conversion that gave them all they wanted and more but within a budget they could afford.
Our initial brief was a kitchen extension but at the client's request this grew into a much larger project that included the relocation of the main entrance to create a grand hallway, a hand-made kitchen, underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and a beautiful modern extension that made the most of the stunning views and garden.
