Internal Remodeling & Side Extension.

Acton, London

The Challenge

Sometimes going big is not the answer. The challenge of this project was to re-imagine the Existing space, The problem for current owners was not that the foot print wasn’t big enough, the layout simply just did not work.

By removing the existing external side storage and replacing with a narrow side extension we also gained a downstairs WC and shower room as well as a practical storage space for bicycles.

The Challenge


When we first visited the house it was clear that the disjointed room layouts were creating a huge problem with how the house was enjoyed, there was no flow between the rooms. During the live design session we completely stripped back the floor plan and started from scratch allowing the clients to think outside the four walls which boxed in each room.

We started connecting each space based on day to day living, we looked at  how the kitchen could connect to living spaces but close off more quite snug areas. After loosely sketching out a few options the clients dreams started coming to life in front of them. Ask My Architect worked closely with interior designer Talia cobbold who created an amazing pallet of tones and colours really defining the spaces of this open plan design.



The Challenge


The owners now have a home which can really be enjoyed. A clever combination of open plan and private spaces create a layout perfect for family life.

The interior decor sets the mood of each space, delivering a stylish, contemporary finish without loosing the character of the original house.
