  • Timeframe: COMPLETE

  • Build date: October 2018 - July 2019

  • Budget: £300,000

  • Location: Colliers Wood

Description


An exciting project for a property developer in South West London. The whole scheme includes:

  • A single-storey ground floor rear extension
  • Full hip-to-gable loft extension
  • Conversion to form 2x flats

 

We uplifted the planning approval to add an extra 5 sq.m to the scheme. This may not seem like a vast improvement, but this allowed the rearrangement of the loft floor to increase a small study into a further bedroom and add circa. £30,000 to our client’s house price. This also increased the head height throughout the loft. The large roof dormer was cladded in zinc and finished with modern glazing, including a Juliette balcony.

Internally, the client installed Karndean flooring throughout, a hard-wearing luxury vinyl tile (LVT). This is very hard-wearing and will ensure there is low maintenance for the next 30+ years. Kitchen units were supplied from Howdens, and a local stone company installed the quartz worktops.

    Overall great design and exceptional value for money. As a first time consumer of architectural services on what was a large project I can not emphasise enough the value add that we got from Ben, Sophie and the wider Aura team. The effort … More and detail put into the design and specification of works along with significant assistance in project management was commendable. As the project evolved it was crystal clear that we saved a significant amount of time and money as a result of having a comprehensive package and most importantly we got what we wanted on budget. Expectations were exceeded in terms of meeting deadlines. Accommodating design changes and assistance with the planning process was also first rate. I would highly recommend the team and look forward to working with them on the next project.

    Couldn't recommend Ben and his team more. We were in a really tricky position with our building project and Ben navigated us safely out of it. Superb guidance, great technical knowledge and what I really valued the most was the communication. … More Always got back to me promptly which makes a real difference when stress levels are high. Thanks Aura!
