The brief

To build a side extension over an existing garage, and a single-storey rear extension.

Jude Tugman of Architect Your Home (architect-yourhome.com) explains how the brief was achieved

‘The owners of this 1930s semi-detached property had been renovating gradually, but had become disillusioned with the project. We were asked to create additional space and an internal layout that was more practical and efficient in meeting their needs.

‘The design involved creating a larger living room, converting the existing, integrated garage into a reception room with a new bay window, and adding a first-floor extension over the old garage to create a master suite. A single-storey rear extension with rooflights and a bi-fold door was also built to create a garden room.’

In the gallery: The new groundfloor layout incorporates the garage, with the first floor extended above.
