The Challenge


Taking in to account the orientation of the property, all of our concepts to transform this entire house focused on maximising natural light throughout.

To meet this large family’s growing needs we increased the house from a 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in to a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom property. We achieved this through a full width ground floor extension and a loft conversion, as well as a full house refurbishment.

By extending the rear of the property on the ground floor by 4 metres we transformed the space in to a large free flowing open plan family area, dining space and kitchen. To ‘bring the outside in’ to all of these areas, we created a contemporary wall of glass across the entire ground floor width, split in to three sections; two large sliding glass doors and a large structural glazed box window which we used to frame a beautiful mature tree outside.

The Challenge


A property transformed in to a larger, lighter wonderful space with extra bedrooms and bathrooms perfectly suited for a large family. Extending the rear of the property has created a stunning free-flowing living, dining and kitchen space all with a spectacular glass feature wall that brings the outside in.

Ask My Architects vision has completely transformed the property, we felt the use of glass in the design was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to fully collaborate in the design process.
