Project Description

The client was initially looking to do a loft conversion and have planning permission and plans drawn by an architect. After we were approved to do the works we discovered that the initial architectural drawings were measured incorrectly and the proposed layouts were not possible as the loft was much smaller than originally thought. At this point the client disengaged the architect and engaged us on a design & build contract. We designed and drew out a new layout for the entire property using revit 3D modelling and instead of adding space in the loft we created a spacious living / dining / kitchen extension with very large glazing and underfloor heating. We re-modelled the entire property including moving walls, fitting new timber floors, painting, wallpapering and working closely with an Italian kitchen designer and supplier. We also did all external works including new patio, terrace, steps and front driveway.

“This house is cosy and comfortable but in a natural way. Our old house was of similar scale, area and build and if you wanted to heat a room you had to blast it and the air would then be very dry and that heat would quickly leak out.”

“Rafael is particularly knowledgeable about green issues and we now have a kitchen/breakfast room which is easy and cheap to heat in the winter and cool in the summer.”
