Firwood Avenue

Transforming an out-dated bungalow

Planning approval has been granted to substantially remodel and extend an existing bungalow in St Albans. 

Located on a corner plot, the existing house is narrow in plan and is set back from the building line of its neighbours. Our design will extend the house upwards and outwards, reintroducing it to the streetscape whilst utilising as much of the existing structure as possible.
The contemporary design features an extended plan creating a series of enclosed courtyard gardens, generous glazing and timber shading devices.Flat roofs will be topped with wildflower meadows, reinforcing the desired close relationship between house and garden. The proposal embeds environmental design and incorporates green technologies to transform the existing into a modern house for a greener future.
