15 & 17 Roseland Avenue

15 & 17 Roseland Avenue

Services provided: full architectural services Completion: December 2015

A pair of extensions on a pair of semi-detached 1930s houses in Heavitree, we were commissioned to extend no. 17 and when the owners bought the adjacent property for their family, to extend that too.

Despite being similar, the projects required different planning routes, [...]

51 Langaton Lane: kitchen extension

Services provided: full architectural design services Completion: April 2011

Our brief here was to open up the cellular plan of a solid 1930’s semi-detached house into a flexible open-plan living space.

We have added an extension whose wide folding doors open directly onto the garden and with rooflights bring light deep into the combined living/dining/kitchen space.

Underfloor [...]
