Florence Road Extension & Renovation
Florence Road, West Bridgford
Our client wanted to create more space in their beautiful detached period home. They wanted to open up the back of the property, extending the ground floor and replanning the existing downstairs layout.
A new large dining kitchen and family room was created as well as a practical and tidy utility room. The family living area not only benefits from floor to ceiling heritage aluminium windows, but also two large roof lights. The property benefited from a large loft which was ripe for conversion to a master bedroom suite with a contemporary twist.
An Eclectic Mix of Contemporary and Traditional
The new external elevation of this project is particularly striking. Black render on the new ground floor extension contrasts with gold zinc cladding for the new loft conversion. The design of this extension deliberately contrasts contemporary materials with the retained traditional period elevation on the street view.
Framing New Views
Large picture windows in both the new main bedrooms and en-suite make the most of the natural light and create new views over this popular suburb of Nottingham.
“We really wanted to do something different with our loft conversion. The house, although Edwardian from the front, was not as pretty from the back. We absolutely love looking at our brass coloured loft extension when the sky is blue and the sun glints on it, the colour is beautiful”
