Don't move - improve! See our top tips to design your perfect extension. Our work as Architects generally involves extensions to create superb family spaces with lots of light and direct connections to the garden. We incorporate plenty of storage, features like vaulted ceilings and even basements
The view of the beach was marred by poor quality timber windows with very large frames. We used a specialist company we have worked with many times to make new glazing with minimal frames to maximise the beach view. We also created a glass box extension that picks the view of a distant headland.

We added a two storey side extension that seamlessly matches the existing and a full width garden extension to make the connection from the Kitchen Family area to the garden terrace.
A couple approached us to redesign their 1980’s house in Tunbridge Wells which is on on a lovely plot tucked away next to woodland within walking distance of the station. It was too small and needed a family extension and complete renovation.
We have added two new bedrooms as a first floor extension and created a large kitchen and family area with a high vaulted ceiling that includes a south facing light scoop.
This cottage had been extended several times before in a rather haphazard way. We filled in the centre of the building with an extension that brings together the whole floor plan and also connects to the garden and the view over the valley.
Family Extension in Greenbelt
This 1950’s house needs complete renovation and replanning. Our design created much larger internal family space and extra bedrooms. We also changed the style with new windows, roof and wall finishes. Negotiations to maximise the extension area succeeded despite the strict Greenbelt rules.
Tenterden Granny Annexe
Annexe for Elderly Parents
The client wanted an annexe where elderly parents could live independently but with help on hand from the family if required. Our design creates a shared glazed entrance that connects the two buildings but allows independent living in the annexe which has its own living room, kitchen and bathroom.
Contemporary Addition to Victorian Villa
Extending a single storey Victorian cottage with a strong character can be tricky. Our bold solution adds a two storey and with large open plan Kitchen Family space and much better sized bedrooms.
An artist asked us to design a radical studio extension to an existing house. Our design creates a flexible studio space overlooking the garden with a Utility Room below. It’s a real shame this was never built.
Family Kitchen and Terrace
This project involved the complete remodelling of the ground floor of a rambling house. As well as creating a superb kitchen family space connected to a large garden terrace, the design included a new 3 storey entrance and stairs area that connects two parts of the house and replaces convoluted corridor areas. Unfortunately it was not built.
Extension Adds Whole Wing
We recently gained planning consent to add a complete new 2 storey wing to this house in Tunbridge Wells. We hope to see it built soon.
This design opens up the whole of the ground floor to make it open plan and replaces a poor quality rear extension with a new gabled projection picking up the sun and garden views. We are still working on this scheme and hope to see it built next year
