Location: Hove, East Sussex
Work carried-out: A Planning Application was submitted for a simple extension infilling the space between the main part of the house and the rearward wing which housed the Kitchen and breakfast area. The extension went up to the boundary so Party Wall considerations came into play.
Project description: The property had formerly been a Post Office and local store. The clients had carried-out much of the conversion work to a very high standard. Having lived there for a while they had come to realise that a new contemporary styled Kitchen / Family Room would make all the difference to how they used the property.
Our role was to facilitate this with a simple design to occupy the space and link back also to the Dining Room. It also had to link well to the garden which was set at a higher level. The Planning Authority insisted on a low wall to the West boundary so as not to affect the neighbour’s amenity. This was achieved without compromising the use of the space
The scheme is on the face of it very simple and needs little further explanation, but the photos show what a difference can be made. The interior design touches are their own and most of the original kitchen units were re-used to keep the costs down and because it is the right thing to do.
