Transforming a bungalow into new property

Our clients approached us to design a new build detached home on the site of their existing, somewhat dilapidated, dormer bungalow in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Design Evolution

The Bungalow sat in a large plot prominently located at the junction of two residential streets; as such, the design evolved to offer a dual aspect to the satisfaction of both the Client and the Planning Department and planning permission was granted.

The new property comprises an impressive two storey structure constructed from traditional materials and techniques in keeping with the aesthetics of the local area. It has a large basement and offers six spacious bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities and a large family room within the roof space. The property also has an attached indoor swimming pool with a sustainable green roof.

Although larger than the original bungalow it will replace, the new property will still benefit from open private gardens and the scale of the property and gardens are now much more balanced.
