West London home extension, refurbishment and enhancement

The owners of a 3 storey terrace in West London wanted more space for a family of five within a tight timescale and navigated around significant statutory restrictions.

An initial phase of upper level refurbishment and enhancement work was undertaken in parallel with the basement dig, and results in a combination of beautifully lit, thermally enhanced bedrooms and bathrooms finished to a high standard.

The basement is light filled and due to high ceilings feels airy and spacious. A new kitchen is further transformed with sliding folding doors opening out to make the most of the garden. The entire ground floor can be easily opened up or closed into a set of private rooms to suit the needs of the family.

Much of the second phase of the work was undertaken with the family occupying the upper levels of the house.

Restrictions placed on the basement by a shared sewer demanded creative architectural consideration. Happily the chosen solution enhances the finished outcome of the project.
