Welcome to our unique consultation room designed to give you an informative tour of design options. Using our build cost calculator you will be able to obtain a ball park budget feasibility report before starting the architectural design process.
We have compiled some simple guidelines to help you consider the size of your extension and the planning implications. We will advise accurately upon formal quotation.
An extension or addition to your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided certain limits and conditions are met. As a guide-
Please view our showroom below to see some of the options you can select to integrate into your extension design.
We hope you have found the guided tour informative and that it has answered some if not all of your initial questions along with providing a budget feasibility report.
A space filled with daylight and fresh air, windows that create a stunning, bright and airy space with real wow factor. When entering a room with a vaulted ceiling you are greeted with a real sense of space. We integrate velux windows to allow light to flood back into the existing part of your property.
Having natural light entering a room from both roof slopes typically gives you sun light during all times of the day. A double vaulted roof will give an enhanced sense of space above all designs. We are able to design a fully glazed gable end for the ultimate luxury finish.
Using the latest in Flat roof designs we can achieve a stylish finish with a warm feel. A Flat roof glazed lantern is designed to trap as much light as possible, flooding the living space below with illumination as well as allowing occupants to enjoy attractive sky views. They are available with active heat repellent glass to keep room temperatures controlled during hot summer months.

When closed these doors will give greater aspect views due to their ability to be designed with much larger glazed sections and slimline frame profiles. Opening orientations can be selected to suit your internally and external layouts. When fully opened they connect outside to in whilst flooding light into the room. Available in aluminium and upvc in a range of colours.
French doors are a great cost effective way to access your outside space whilst retaining maximum wall space for furniture. You can add full height glazed side panels to allow more natural light to fill your internal space. Available in a range of colors.
This is a fantastic option that will suit properties with a dual aspect garden or terrace. We are able to design a system where 2 sets of doors or windows meet on the corner of the building leaving just a visual of the frame when fully opened. This design gives a real wow factor to a project enabling the inside to be incorporated with multiple outdoor seating locations.
When deciding how open plan to go it can be hard to visualize. Typically for a rear single story extension to host a kitchen with island, diner & soft seating area, the full length of the existing external wall within the scope of the extension will need to be removed, together with internal dividing walls at the rear of the property.
This then allows enough depth to the room. For an open plan kitchen with island, diner & snug, it would generally require 35-40sq meters in total including extension and existing floor space.
It is not uncommon to design open plan living but with some visualrestrictions. For instance, not all clients like to have the kitchen visible to their diners.
We can remove parts of existing walls or if there is an existing window on the elevation that is now covered by the extension, we can remove the wall below the window to form the new opening. Alternatively simply remove existing French doors to form the opening into the extension.
