Detached House Extension in Duffield
Hazelwood Road, Duffield
This detached house was well cared for and in an outstanding location in the Derbyshire village of Duffield. The owners knew they wanted to bring their home into the 21st century. They were looking to make some changes for their growing family.
The Right Spaces in the Right Places
Our client had already had planning consent granted for a design drawn by another firm of architects. Whilst the design met part of their brief, they felt they were left with a property which was much too big for their needs. We were asked to review the scheme and our ideas led to a full appointment on the project.
Creating Spaces for Modern Family Life
Our client required five bedrooms on one floor. Having previously been scattered all over the building we were able to reconfigure the layout so that all the bedrooms could be located on the existing ground floor. Bedrooms were given their own ‘wing’ so that they were kept separate from the flow of the living spaces.
A House That Feels Like a Home
We believe the flow of a home is really important to our clients enjoyment of their space. If rooms feels like they are in the correct place and order the entire home feels right and will be a pleasure to live in.
Efficient Use of Space
By redesigning the internal layout, we were not only able to make more efficient use of the footprint, we were also able to save our client significant unnecessary expenditure.
Imaginative Family Spaces
The children had their hopes for first floor bedrooms from the previous designs, we were able to please them with a mezzanine for sleepovers, much more fun!
