Planning permission granted: Surbiton Road

by Paul.

On its way! We’re thrilled that this mixed-use scheme on Surbiton Road has been granted planning permission.

Behind the listed façade, the existing buildings will be partially demolished to make way for nine residential units with flexible retail and coworking space on the ground floor. Roof gardens will top off the four storeys and a communal courtyard at the base will bring the development together. The best of old meeting new.

The replacement rear extension forms a courtyard with the new infill, with an internal bench seat overlooking the external space.

Before, after, and again

by Lizzie.

We were delighted to be asked to work with the new owners of this house to add a loft conversion, having previously designed the side infill and renovation of the ground floor. It was great to see the house evolve and be enjoyed by its new occupants. You can see more of the original project here.

Brixton Renovation

by Lizzie.

This recently completed project in Brixton, carried out by 4-You Residential, involved a full house refurbishment as well as a modest rear & side extension and loft conversion. The house had been untouched for many years and was in need of modernisation, with a brief which included cooking & dining spaces fit for a chef to entertain their guests. The result is a bright, warm home with a strong connection to the garden.
