St Andrews Avenue

The owner of this 1980s mews property was keen to modernise their ground floor to provide an open-plan living space, improved use of their kitchen and access to their garden and a separate utility space to segregate clutter. Permitted development rights had been revoked on the property at the time of construction which meant that all modifications required a planning application. The solution was a pair of side and rear single storey extensions, replacing the existing conservatory at the rear, enabling the plan to be opened up.

Bi-folding doors to the new, rear extension provide a focal point from inside and allow light to penetrate deep into the plan.
