Queens Wood Extension Exterior

Northwood House Extension

Our clients requested a renovation of the ground floor of their four-story townhouse in Northwood. After their children left for university, they wanted a re-planned space for their use as a couple. The project aimed to extend and convert the ground floor, creating a superb master bedroom opening onto a beautiful garden.

The refurbishment included structural opening-up, garage and utility room conversion, entrance hall refurbishment, re-planned staircase, ground floor extension, and a new terrace in the garden. The master bedroom suite boasts a serene ambience with a spacious ensuite bathroom and a separate coffee and reading area.

House, Extension, Refurbishment

The design opens up the back of the house, introducing a glass box extension with sliding glass doors to maximize the beauty of the garden. The glass box extension functions as an extension of the bedroom, with a built-in blind for privacy at night and a flood of natural light during the day.

The entire ground floor was replaced with a new insulated reinforced concrete floor slab with under-floor heating. The seamless resin finish throughout the ground floor and ensuite bathroom is soft to the touch, easy to clean, and hard-wearing. Banks of full-height storage were also incorporated into the bedroom space.

The entrance hall was refurbished with a new modern double door in solid oak and a glass side panel to bring light into the hallway. A new architectural stair design with open treads and risers and a glass balustrade were installed to maximize light and transparency.

Finally, bespoke joinery was fitted along the length of the hallway to store coats and shoes, with additional joinery designed to fit within the spaces. Our clients’ artwork was also incorporated into the design to complete the spaces.
