The project brief was explore the potential for further extensions to an existing newly built house within PS8 Open Countryside. The extension was to form a rear first floor balcony and a single storey swimming pool side extension with spa, bar and sauna. Materials and designs were to be sympathetic to the existing construction, and extensions were to minimise disruption to the existing house roof by utilising a flat roof and parapet. Full planning was gained in November 2017 and works commenced on site in September 2018. Other major works include substantial internal remodelling to form a new lounge, playroom and home cinema complete with 3m long saltwater aquarium integrated into the walls. Practical Completion (via Partial Possession linked to other Client-led external contract works), was Spring 2020.
