East Hampshire District Council have approved planning for multiple extensions to a detached home built in the 1970s/80s in Grayshott on the Hampshire/Surrey border. 

Many properties on this popular village street have been heavily modified and extended over time. However, this family home has yet to be altered or renovated. Our clients approached ArchitectureLIVE with a brief to enhance the layout and functionality of their family home. 

The new, two storey extension to the front will provide space to relocate the hallway, stairs and a new shower room, which together with further internal adaptations, allows for a new open plan kitchen and dining room layout. A new single storey side extension will house a new living room whilst the existing garage, which is too small for contemporary use, will be converted into a playroom. A new master-bedroom suite will be built above the existing flat roofed garage to complete the redesign.  

As per planning policy, the new front extension is subservient to the main house with a double hipped roof retaining the existing ridge height of the host building. The two side extensions adopt the existing roof geometry and materials to provide a cohesive design, terminating the existing ridge line with a hip and parapet detail. 

The new elevations and the existing garage conversion will be finished with insulated render and all windows are to be replaced with polyester powder coated aluminium framed glazing in dark grey. 

Whilst using traditional existing materials, the redesign of this family home will feature clean and contemporary detailing to deliver an exciting transformation .
