House in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire:
Dr and Mrs. Bartle asked us to design a substantial extension to their house in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, incorporating an indoor swimming pool, change room with shower, room for their children to do their homework and a room housing a full size snooker table.
The original house was built in the 1930's and in order not to interfere with the original design, the extension is attached to the house with a glazed link.
The pool is located overlooking a luxuriantly planted spinney.
The use of natural materials and colours link the pool enclosure with the landscape.
An interesting feature is the electronically operated pool cover which is housed on a reel at the bottom of the deep end.
The works were carried out on time and within budget.
Alterations and extension to a house in Radlett for Mr. and Mrs. Les. Joffe:
Extensive alterations to the interior of the ground and first floors. The ground floor was “opened up” to provide a generous dining/kitchen leading to a purpose designed conservatory with sliding folding doors to access a large timber deck facing the mature garden. This was a second appointment following alterations to a cottage in the previous family home in a nearby village.
Rear Extension in Hanwell, London W7:
Our client required our architectural services in connection with the design and construction of a single storey rear dining area extension and internal alterations to provide a new kitchen space, a new utility room and WC accessible off the entrance hall.
The new design will improve the quality of natural light to the new kitchen/dining area and provide a good view of the rear garden. Installation of sliding-folding doors provides easy access to the rear garden.
Our clients are delighted with alterations and extension of their home.
