Kitchen Extension and Loft Conversion, Bramford Road SW18, Wandsworth
The client wanted to make extensive improvements to her home in Wandsworth, including a loft conversion, kitchen extension, and alterations to her existing lounge and one of the existing bedrooms. As part of the whole house conversion, we reconfigured the lounge to be open plan, and added underfloor heating to offer a more efficient and pleasant way of heating the house.
The Mansard loft conversion included sash windows on the Mansard construction and Velux windows to the front, so the new rooms were private but well-lit. All brickwork and roof slates were matched to the existing building, and low energy lighting has helped to keep bills down while helping the environment.
The kitchen extension opened out to the side of the property, with bi-fold doors that let the client open up a lot of the kitchen in summer for entertaining or to enjoy the warm weather. In winter, the underfloor heating and excellent insulation ensure that the rooms’ ambient temperature is comfortable while reducing heat loss. While the lounge was built to be open plan, we added steps from the lounge to the kitchen to define the separate areas. All of the work took around 12 weeks, and we are extremely happy with the results.
