Bespoke single storey extension

EP Architects Ltd, was recommended by a previous client to provide architectural services to design a single storey side extension and internal alterations to this 1960’s private semi-detached house.

The brief was to design a modern flat roofed, highly glazed extension to allow views over a well maintained garden. Due to the sloping nature of the site the extension sits into the lawn to the north of the site and opens out to a patio to the west. The clients were very involved at an early stage by providing mood boards and also in the choice of external materials and the look that they wanted to create in their project, which was welcomed.

A large flat roof light provides light over a large dining space, in addition to the large sliding patio doors. Internally, the existing dining room was divided to provide a large utility room and cloakroom, accessed from the kitchen and providing rear access to the garden and garage.

The extension is quite different to the original house, yet compliments it, with its simplicity and strong detailing.


We recently engaged EP Architects to design an imaginative single storey extension and to convert part of our existing home to a new utility room with a downstairs toilet. They took us through the process from initial survey, concept, detailed design, competitive tendering and on to the appointment of our contractor. This process included planning and building regulation approvals. They added value at every step of our journey creating an inspiring design which will link our home to our garden. They were always quick to respond, producing clear and very detailed drawings. We enjoyed the whole process and the guiding hands they provided.
