Contemporary Two Storey Extension overlooking the River Hamble

The existing building is Bauhaus in style, typical of the neighbourhood and sits on the position of the original “Master House” of the Crowsport estate. The building sits on an east west axis and directly overlooks the River Hamble. Due to its orientation, the garden receives sunlight throughout the morning to early afternoon. The rear garden is landscaped and provides views across the river. 

The proposal is to utilise the existing materials of white render and glazing but modernise the external aesthetics while using the extensions to create a beautiful contemporary building with increased natural daylight. The addition of accents of grey slate will be used to define aspects of the elevations while allowing the property to be read in conjunction with neighbouring properties by matching their material palette. 

The work itself will include ground floor and first floor extensions as well as a comprehensive internal remodel allowing the clients to create a home for themselves which meets their requirements and promotes a modern lifestyle with open plan areas for the kitchen and living spaces and creation of additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom with a study and casual seating area will be located on the first floor as this will allow perfect views across the river and create a quiet and relaxed space.
