contemporary SHEFFIELD house extension

Status - Built


Architect's Brief

We were appointed to breathe new life into a dull detached home in the sought after area of Dore in Sheffield.

Our clients wanted to make a number of changes to the existing layout as well as adding a series of house extensions to create a more suitably proportioned and attractive four bedroom home for their family.

One of the main issues with the existing layout was the poor location of the main entrance, so one of our first tasks was to centralise this on the front of the house and create a new entrance porch. To the side of the existing house, a new two storey extension was formed whilst to the rear a contemporary flat roofed extension was formed with large aluminium sliding windows to frame view out onto the rear garden. 


The completed works transformed this property into a large and modern family home that offers great contemporary living space. The property now benefits from:

  • Large open plan living space across the back of the home that includes a kitchen, dining and lounge areas

  • Separate snug

  • Study

  • Utility room and downstairs toilet

  • Central porch and entrance hallway

  • Large garage

  • Four bedrooms (master bedroom with En-suite and dressing rooms)

  • Family bathroom
