This was a large residential property in Southsea which is in an area lived in and designed by Thomas Ellis Owen. The property is in a Portsmouth City Council Conservation area.
The original photograph below shows the timber part of the building which did not give the property the grand design and appearance it should command.
Working closely with the owner, the architect and the Local Authority we were able to construct extension that not only gave the client the additional space required but also gave the finished property the image that the extension was part of the original design of the house.
The project involved making an application and negotiation with the planning department and building control office throughout.
We constructed the extension with a mind to continue the moulding and block-work appearance of the original building. The roof design and final appearance needed very close work so as to avoid possible weathering issues.
