TLM has been appointed to do the concept design and initial phases of an outbuilding on this spectacular plot in Wimbledon. The owner would like a simple and elegant single-storey building that will accommodate a games room, kitchenette, shower room and entertainment space, and would enjoy something that is in comfortable contrast to the Victorian house that is on the site.
We are investigating the possibility of adding more bathrooms to this house in Oxted, and paper was the quickest way of getting to four possible layouts.
The first round of concept layouts have gone out to the clients, and the feedback so far has been positive. They would like to reconfigure their internal space to create a TV room/lounge where currently they have a kitchen, by extending to the rear of this terraced property in Wimbledon.
As part of the flexible office/guest bedroom arrangement, we had to explore options for how the wall bed can be turned into a desk when there are no guests in the house. time to brush up on some SketchUp skills.
Sketch design is underway for the side/rear extension over two floors. The orientation of the kitchen will be a big question, as will the extent of the double-storey extension, but that will all work itself out.
