We are delighted that planning approval has been granted for our project in Keynsham!
The project involves a new porch, two-storey side extension and a single-storey extension to the rear. The ground floor additions are proposed in brick, with the first floor extension fully clad in hung tiles. The materials take cues from the existing palette of the house, but with a clear, contemporary addition.
Our clients originally approached us to look at design options for their home, which their family have lived in since it was built in the 1950s. Due to family memories being so locked into the existing house, any interventions needed to respect this, whilst also allowing for a new chapter.
One of the main challenges was to transform the disconnected, disproportional rooms into a bright and open space, with a clear connection between the front and back of the house. Our design aims to allow natural light to flow throughout the house, making it feel bright, spacious and inviting.
As always, we loved collaborating with Sasha and Mark at Context Planning. The planning process for this project was particularly tricky, and we are over the moon to have finally achieved planning permission for our lovely clients.
We have now been appointed for technical design and can't wait to see the project get onsite!
