Project: Dividing an existing detached house into two semi-detached homes
Location: Teddington, Middlesex
Project period: 30 weeks
Completed: October 2017
Architect: Studio Webb Architects
Originally this four-bedroom house was two small cottages which were combined to create the larger dwelling. Our clients purchased this property with the intention of returning the house to two dwellings as a London base and a rental option.
Externally the old wooden conservatory was demolished and replaced by a wrap-around flat roof extension across the whole width of the property. Each property is a mirror of the other with a 5m rooflight in the kitchen and a combination of new pre-finished triple glazed wooden sash windows, velux rooflights and triple-glazed aluminium sliding doors onto the courtyard gardens. We extended into the loft and constructed a full width dormer extension to the rear, creating a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room. Every effort was made to be sympathetic to the original building and surrounding characteristics, keeping the brick façade, wooden windows and slate roof.
Internally a large light-filled kitchen diner was constructed, the ground floor was opened up and new staircases put in. The whole building was stripped out, internal walls moved and it was redecorated to a high standard.
