Longstaff Road, Wandsworth

Our clients approached us with a brief to add a loft with ensuite, and a 6x6m ground floor extension. The neighbours didn’t object to our neighbour consultation scheme application and so off we went! The loft represented some design adaptations to the house, requiring the first floor ceiling to be lowered to avoid the new loft roof being visible from the street.

At 6m’s deep, the ground floor extension needed some special thinking to make sure we got natural light deep into the floorplate and the kitchen which was to remain in the same location. The roof form was inspired by old industrial rooflights on railway/mill buildings and applied using modern systems to punch light deep into the house. Slimline sliding doors were used on the rear elevation to maximise visibility. Due to the striking form of the roof we needed a quality finish and vmzinc anthra was used to give dark sharp lines to the roofform.

We are here to help

    We used Atelierdb to design and project manage our kitchen extension. We found David extremely professional and with great attention to detail. The design process was tailored and iterative to ensure we met our objectives wherever possible, and the project management service was invaluable to keep us on track (and sane!) during the building works. We are now delighted with the new living space that it has achieved for us.

    It has been an absolute pleasure working with Atelierdb from the initial planning and design of the project right through to completion. Not only did they deliver on the brief, they managed to exceed our expectations on what could be done to the space (whilst staying within budget!). The entire process remained stress-free thanks to the ongoing communication between Atelierdb and the building contractor, allowing the project to be completed on time and to a very high standard. Highly recommended.

    We appointed Atelierdb to re-design our house prior to a full renovation. We were extremely pleased with the service, David and his team provided many layout possibilities, they were flexible and professional throughout and always had solutions. I would highly recommend them.

    We're very happy with the basement living space which was created as part of a larger renovation of the property. atelierdb helped us focus on the relevant issues at the relevant time and were particularly diligent in administering the building contract.

    We have recently completed our kitchen extension project and I can only recommend David and his team. The support and patience during the design phase was great and the project management and support during the construction has been really helpful. They turned an idea into an amazing living space.

    We have since moved into a larger property and project and we are now working with atelierdb for the second time.
