Single Storey Extension and Loft Conversion to create a new family home with a fresh and cleaned lined interior.
This Victorian house will get a make over with a loft conversion and a single storey extension.
House remodelling and extension.
Fingerprintstudios architects were appointed to undertake a major re-modelling to an existing Victorian semi detached property. The design features a new open plan ground floor with a contemporary single storey extension to the rear and major re-modelling of the first floor finished with a new open plan loft bedroom. The reconfiguration of the kitchen and utility areas and full landscaping to the garden to create a closer connection between the internal living spaces and external areas.
This modest Victorian home in Southsea Portsmouth was never intentionally designed for a loft conversion. In order to get the staircase to work a clever introduction of creating a new step landing on the existing corridor and rising the height of the small third bedroom floor to match this new landing allowed the introduction of a staircase without losing a bedroom. This has allowed for the potential to build within the roof space to create a new master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and separate changing room. This loft conversion allows for this modest home to become a four bedroom property increasing the value of this inner city location.
Planning Permission and Full Plans Building Control Approval.
A full plans Planning Application was approved by Portsmouth City Council for this Single Storey Extension and Loft Conversion with no additional planning conditions to be discharged. This has enabled Fingerprintstudios Architects to progress to the full plans Building Control Approval. Combining both the planning and building control elements prior to the tender phase for construction has ensured that the contractors have received appropriate drawings, schedules and specifications to get better quotations and will assist during the construction phase.
