Project Brief – Replacement Dwelling | Size – 235m2 | Approximate Cost – £350k (2015) |
Services Provided – Design, Planning
Here we have an example of a new build designed here at A & K Architectural Services. Although this is not how the development was originally conceptualised by the client.
We were approached by the client initially to undergo a loft conversion to the dwelling that would modernise the existing hip ended bungalow. During our discussions with the client we advised that although the loft conversion would be possible it may not be the most financially appropriate development given the aspirations of the client.
Due to the benefits of a new build (primarily a zero rate VAT) it made more sense for the existing bungalow to be demolished to make way for a new, modern dwelling fit for the 21st century.
The dwelling was a bespoke design around the clients requirements and was upside down in layout to capitalise on the countryside views the site has to offer.
