Two Storey House Extension in Royton

"A light, bright studio to work in" and that is just a part of what we created in a swish new side and rear extension!

The studio is the key feature of the cleverly constructed double house extension. It's contemporary white, bright and open plan, ideal for working creatively and with colour.

Around this we have also been able to install a comfortable first floor bedroom, a contemporary en suite to the master bedroom and modern TV room downstairs.

Planning and Design

To create a modern extension that blends beautifully with the existing appearance of a four bedroom detached stone clad house it is no small challenge. We achieved the satisfying form and additional space - within planning restrictions - using our extensive architectural skill.

The picture from the garden shows we achieved harmony between the original house and the extension. The new extension inherits design principles used in the original house design, matching and working with them so the side and rear extension mirrors the form of the garage, but extends further to the rear.

Materials were matched and while the angles of each roof appear similar, because they are broken by the central roofline of the gable section, the new roof actually has a lower pitch.

The relevant Planning restrictions relate to the height and projection of house extensions. These imposed strict limits, however designing innovatively within these to create the studio we maximised other space and value adding options to the ground and first floors.

Artists Studio

The large, contemporary artist's studio is purpose designed to maximise the light conditions in the room. Large full height fixed double glazed glass windows, glass patio doors and a bank of three electric Velux windows let daylight stream into the room.

White non-slip gloss tiles cover the floor, clear white painted walls and white polyurethane finish on the internal sides of windows, doors and Velux windows help bounce light around the interior surfaces and illuminate the room to maximum effect. This airy, luminescent quality makes the room ideal for artistic work.

From the landscaped garden, the windows and doors are framed in dark brown wood grain that matches the existing house design as it integrates harmoniously with the stonework.

TV Room

For added WOW factor we also designed a TV room with high level windows. From outside the high level windows appear discreet, yet internally they dramatise the light entering the room and maximise useable wall space.

We built power for surround-sound speakers into the walls and on the floor laid cream coloured tiles. The family installed the finishing touches such as the deep pile rug and low furniture which make the room an attractive, contemporary area in which to relax and be entertained.

Loft Bedroom

For maximum benefit from the extension we designed a bedroom within the roof space of the studio. Not impacting the functioning of the studio, the additional bedroom is a modern and valuable contribution to the house. A bank of Velux windows spans almost the entire room to dramatic effect both internally and externally and blackout blinds can be fitted if required for comfort.

Contemporary en suite

Behind the bedroom is a contemporary en suite to the master bedroom. Created where we broke through the main gable wall into the extension it is a large, light and stylish bathroom with modern full sized bath, shower cubicle, toilet and semi pedestal sink.

Contemporary features include patterned tiling around the bath and walls, non- slip black gloss floor tiles and chrome fittings for bath, sink and shower. Traditional features include the windows that externally match the style of the existing stone house; these have stone mullions, heads and cills.

We also modernised the master bedroom and installed contemporary fitted wardrobes with contrasting high gloss doors and wooden frame.
