Our proposal to dramatically remodel a small chalet bungalow has been granted planning permission. The design incorporates a series of steel frames to create a mono-pitch form allowing large expanses of glass facing over river views. 90% of the existing ground floor walls will need to be retained to make this project financially viable. The ground floor rooms will be converted into bedrooms, with the new first floor space creating a large open plan spaces with projecting terraces forming external break out spaces. The creation of the form is 'structure led' to keep the shell costs down whilst creating as much impact visually as possible. Important areas of the façade have been prioritised with high quality materials, with other areas finished with cost effective but low maintenance finishes.
