Architect's Brief

We were appointed as architects for a challenging, yet rewarding project in the Fulwood area of Sheffield.

The brief was extend and renovate an existing, run-down bungalow into a two storey contemporary home by adding a whole new floor.

Design Solution

The design for this proposal had to be carefully considered to respect its immediate context.  Existing bungalows are located to either side, so the addition of a new floor had to be designed to have minimal impact on its neighbours.  The roof was reconfigured and redesigned to create additional floor space with minimal increase in height.  

The proposal was extended to the side and rear under the new roof design to create a dwelling which had been considered as a whole.  The property is given a complete renovation, finished in off-white render and larch timber cladding.  A dramatic recessed balcony is created at the front of the dwelling to take advantage of the views over the adjacent countryside.
