Location of property: Chiswick
Whitehall Gardens W4 3LT
Local planning borough: Hounslow
Project brief: To add a side extension to the kitchen, create a utility room and a wc at ground floor level.
The result: By opening up the entire ground floor, removing all internal walls but adding in one large pocket sliding door in the middle of the new space it allowed maximum flexibility. It meant the large open plan ground floor could have different zoned uses. Living at the front, kitchen in the middle and more living at the back. We put a utility room in the existing basement by dropping the floor, tanking it and ventilating.
