This award winning project involved the formation of a large contemporary extension at the rear of an 8 bedroom Victorian Grade II listed building, as well as the construction of a new basement which is linked to the main house via the extension. The vision was to create a contemporary space which contrasts the existing architecture of the house.
Internal refurbishment, rear extension and new garage
This project was to make improvements on a house which sits in the green belt zone. An extension to the main house was required to further expand living areas and kitchen space, and included a swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna.
Open plan kitchen/dining and extended living space
This contemporary extension on Eastern Road, Selly Park has been designed to provide the clients with extended living space whilst using white render and a dark grey blend to enhance the contemporary aesthetic.
This extension on Wentworth Road, Harborne provides a family space with strong links to the rear garden whilst juxtaposing the Victorian architecture of the house. The contemporary extension replaced an uninspiring 1960s brick extension which the clients referred to as "a crime scene"! It is designed to blur the boundaries between the interior spaces of the house and itself, and between the inside and the outside.
This contemporary extension on Kingscote Road, Harborne is based on two interlocking cubes, the lower one deals with the low level roof of the bay window and the larger block forms an extension to the existing kitchen. The scheme received unconditional approval from Calthorpe Estates.
The brief was to transform a 1960’s prairie-style architect designed house into a contemporary and open plan house. The ground floor was opened up to great a larger kitchen / dining space to create a relationship to the exterior courtyard spaces whilst a separate formal living room and music room were retained.
The brief was to transform a typical 1970’s chalet-style house into a contemporary and open plan house. The ground floor was made as open plan as possible to maximise on views and daylight, including an open tread staircase, views through the house from the front door, and a large expanse of folding/sliding doors at the rear.
