A large back land site formed from part of a garden for a large dwelling on a private housing estate.

The main feature of this property is the glass frontage.  Due to the enclosed nature of the site and the building’s proximity to other neighbouring properties, windows could not be provided to the sides or rear, therefore the main source of light and outlook to the whole internal space was from the front.

The structure consisted of a steel frame with blockwork cavity wall construction, timber floors and roof along with a basement garage/plant roof.

All of the glass is provided by ODC who supply all doors/windows for our projects. Their website is well worth a visit to explore the various options you can use on your project.

The end result is quite spectacular and created a modern, high specification family home.

This project was our 31st on Littleton Street.  We have been working on this street since 2007 undertaking a variety of ground floor extensions and loft conversions to create a large family home.

A typical Victorian terrace with a large family community so additional space is paramount.  Additional living space was required at ground floor level along with separate utility room and toilet.

The duo-pitch shape of the roof is a good example of how this design promotes light and space for the property internally by allowing large folding doors with a glazed gable over to the rear, but also minimises the  impact on the neighbours, as the gutter level (eaves) on the boundary lines are kept as low as possible.
