Their brief was to make best use of the existing structure, add open plan areas, incorporate a triple garage and orientate the house to take in the views of the woodland. In their words ‘turn an ugly ducking into a swan’.
We created a modern home that ticked all of the client’s boxes, including being an affordable renovation project. The complete transformation was completed Spring 2018 and we left the client with spaces that are fit for purpose and a home that bore little resemblance to the original.
We dropped a super modern cloak over the tired bungalow, rotated the house through 180 degrees and designed a feature modern entrance with a wow factor. We added a stunning open plan kitchen living dining area with a dramatic vaulted ceiling at the rear looking out over the woodland areas.
A particular achievement on this project was creating the look of a new build rather than an old house that’s been added to. We resolved this by using existing rooflines to create a seamless modernisation.
We left the clients with an extremely impressive modern home, designed with their specific needs in mind. A tailor made home which Paul and Suzanne are truly proud of.
“We first met Tom when we used his services for a large industrial build in 2011. We were so impressed with his knowledge and efficiency that we chose him for the design and planning when we bought a run down house in 2016. He really came into his own here, demonstrating his flair and imagination to turn a very ugly old bungalow into a stylish modern home.
We appreciated his excellent communication, his easy going nature, his exciting ideas and the swift progression from beginning to end. The planning permission was granted quickly without any issues even though we were making substantial changes to the house.
He liaised between all the necessary people involved in the build, providing the structural calculations and organising the building control on our behalf.
More recently we have used him to design some smaller industrial units which we will build this year and we have recently had planning passed on another project in our garden for a large garage and hobby room. Again we have been impressed with his efficient liaison with the council throughout the planning permission stages.
We highly recommend his services, in fact many of our close friends have used Tom to re-design their homes.”
