Helping a family to choose a house, extend, refurbish & build it.

A two storey side extension and house refurbishment

Wandsworth, London

We remodelled the ground floor to create a family kitchen / dining room space that became the heart of the house. Full height windows and folding glass doors were added. The extension enclosed a private raised terrace, overlooking a south facing garden. The upper floor has a new master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and enlarged bedrooms.

Before the purchase

Studio S Architects helped the client decide which house to buy, understand their family needs and visited the property.  Then we produced several sketch plans, a perspective drawing and pricing by our contractor. This showed how the client’s budget could be maximised to create their ideal family home.

After the purchase

The client explored further designs with Studio S Architects through CAD plans, sketches and 3D computer models to refine their design.

The construction purchase

SSA provided the full architectural services including: obtaining planning permission, building regulations, party wall award, construction drawings, choosing one of our builders through a 2-stage tender and running the project on site to ensure a high-quality building.

The 2 storey extension looks like the other houses from the front, but at the rear; the highly insulated sustainable timber frame structure is clad in timber and has large windows that give distant views and draw in the sun’s warmth.

Our personal service helped the client create their ideal family home and maximise the potential of their budget.
