Frank Dixon Place
Our clients needed an architect in Dulwich, South London to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their New extensions to existing house.
A substantial 1930’s house set within a private road on the Dulwich Estate. The house has become tired and needs complete refurbishment.
In addition the single storey extension, facing the garden is poorly arranged and does little to relate the other living spaces.
We have proposed to demolish the existing extension and rebuild a new single storey construction. This will incorporate a loggia with an integral louvred soffit..
The interior will be completely re-modelled and an additional extension added to the rear of the property.
The planning application was submitted in May 2010 and we hope to start construction in October 2010.
We used the van Ellen and Sheryn practice as we had been impressed by a project they had completed on Dartmoor. We worked alongside both Eilir and Ian and both were very approachable, experienced and informal….which we liked.
They listened to our brief and appreciated that we had a budget.
Our project was complicated as we wanted to retain the Georgian frontage of the building and demolish the rear, adding a contemporary barn like structure.
They were always available and professional throughout..It’s reassuring to know they are just down the road should we need advice or clarification during the build process. We would certainly recommend them.
