A detached 1930’s dwelling in Motspur Park, KT3, underwent a substantial internal make-over involving front, side, and rear extensions. The original layout of the dwelling was typical of its era with two ground floor formal reception rooms, kitchen and small utility room. Upstairs it had 2 double bedrooms, 2 singles and a small family bathroom.
The proposals added substantial additional floor space over and above the existing. Downstairs; a large garage, formal sitting room, shower room, utility room and of course an incredibly large open-plan kitchen, dining and additional family room.
To the front of the dwelling the extensions matched the style of the existing double-bay window with new anthracite aluminium windows. A handmade set of garage and oversized main doors helped break up the visual aesthetics of the front façade along with a new dark grey slate roof helping to tie in the colours perfectly. The rear of the dwelling allowed more flexibility with planning policy thus modern elements were introduced; vaulted glazing, full width bi-fold doors and beautiful Larchwood cladding.
The interior finish was kept very simple with tones of grey, off and pure whites. Focal colours were added in the form of interior to exterior slate cladding and feature walls lifted with high-end tiling and mirrors to increase the feeling of space.
