This project comprises a contemporary ground floor lean-to extension and loft conversion to maximise the space of a 1930s house in Portsmouth. The ground floor extension creates an open plan kitchen and living space that successfully links with the existing living space. The extension floor was dropped to provide a level threshold, with bi-folding glazed doors offering strong indoor / outdoor connections and views of the south-facing garden. The lean-to extension creates additional space and roof windows offer additional light. The loft conversion with new tile clad dormers provides a master bedroom suite with ensuite facilities and custom-built wall units. A bespoke plywood staircase successfully links with the existing house. A sympathetic material palette of brick and slate was selected to complement the existing house. A contemporary high-end single-storey extension and loft conversion provide amenity values, garden views and much needed additional light.
