This project commenced as a large “irregular” shaped garden to an existing two storey house. The land contained two detached garage blocks.

Architectural Building Design Services were engaged, in 2006, to prepare some designs of how the large garden area could be divided to form a separate building plot for an additional dwelling.

Great consideration was given, not only to where the new site entrance would be positioned (to achieve the maximum visibility for vehicles entering and exiting the site), but also to take into account nearby dwellings in regard to not affecting the amount of natural daylight entering those properties.

Designs were prepared alongside the Client’s brief and a Dormer Bungalow was thought to be the best solution to keep the height of the new building as low as possible.
The new building plot had an area of 380sq m.

Pre-application advice was obtained from the Local Planning Department and Highway’s Authority.  Then a Planning Application was prepared, submitted and granted.

On the elevations, interest was added to the external appearance with several feature gables and dormer windows.
Facing brickwork and roof tiles were specified to blend in with and compliment the surrounding area.
