We were asked to extend and reconfigure a dated and unsightly 1970's bungalow to create modern open plan living for the client’s young family.
The bungalow sits on a generous corner plot in a suburban area of York. The existing plan and footprint didn't provide adequate living accommodation for the family and we were approached to look at an attic conversion. Through lengthy engagement with the client our proposals looked at demolishing a series of recent ad-hoc extensions and adding a new wing of open plan living accommodation.
The proposals significantly increase the footprint of the existing bungalow. The old bungalow now forms bedroom accommodation with the new extension forming an open plan kitchen/diner. The south facing garden is now the heart of the building and has become an enclosed safe area for the children to play in with large expanses of glass creating indoor/outdoor living.
The proposals create an angular and dynamic living space that is responsive to the local materials, but visually modern in it's approach, and distinctive from the original bungalow.
