Streatham Common - Single Storey Side Extension

Streatham Common - Single Storey Side Extension

Situated close by to Streatham Common, our client reached us with the challenge of a single-storey side extension while transforming and reconfiguring their traditional, semi-detached property. So, we had to consider the extension and reconfiguration while designing. Overall, we found the project really interesting.


Their house already had enough space to create a side extension. And moreover, there was already an existing outbuilding that they were using as a garage. And we actually took that as an opportunity to design something beautiful as well as cost-effective by using that existing structure. Our focus was on creating an open plan living/kitchen area. And we decided on utilising the existing outbuilding to create a stylish alfresco dining space. Our client came up with a vision of creating a bright, airy, and spacious contemporary space.

What We Came Up With

Retaining the main structure of the outbuilding enabled us to create a small angular rear extension and connect it to the proposed dining room for creating an open-plan kitchen/living space. We left the remaining space at the rear to make a large patio. We used bi-folding doors, stretching across both elevations, etc. to create a magnificent transition between indoors and outdoors. 


Our aim was to create a perfect place for entertaining during the summer. The advantage of retaining the existing structure and renovating that allowed us to create a spacious place with a lot of interior prospects, in spite of the limited budget. Along with the proposed internal reconfigurations, we created a separate utility as well as shower room without eating up lots of space from the main room.
