The proposal is the conversion of the existing loft space (currently unused) into habitable living space fitting 4 new bedrooms (one master with an en-suite bathroom) and a shared bathroom to accommodate for a family of 5 persons. Also, to modernize the existing ground floor layout with the adaptation of the current dining and kitchen areas to become one unified open plan space with external access to the rear garden and timber decking. This ground floor adaptation includes the introduction of a quiet living space, a children’s playroom, a WC and utilities room with a newly proposed staircase to accommodate maximized spaces on first floor level.
External works include a proposed discreetly rear timber box dormer positioned on the south facing rear pitched roof with windows looking towards the garden of the proposed site taking care to not disrupt the key elevations. The building has been designed carefully to not upset the existing appearance visible from other properties or conservation area. We proposed what we consider a modest intervention into an established site which looks to update the current building character and appearance improving and modernising the bungalow. The timber over time will fade and root the building into its existing natural surroundings.
The introduction of new PV panels, new Heat Recovery Ventilation System (MVHR), new Air Source Heat Pump system (ASHP) and new underfloor heating on new ground beam and block floor are also part of this major refurbishment scheme.
