Reigate – Double Story Extension

The client wanted to relocate the kitchen to provide a better connection to the garden and to provide evenly sized bedrooms for their children, without encroaching into the outdoor space. To achieve this, we proposed a two-storey rear extension within the existing footprint of the house by removing the existing conservatory and garage.

The house is Arts & Crafts, and an important component of the brief was to be sympathetic to the existing style of the building. The design seeks to add a rear gable overlooking the garden, with single storey wings that allow for an open plan space within. Another key element of the brief was to bring more daylight to the centre of the house; the roofs of the single storey portions will be glazed to encourage the light inside the building.

The project is due to receive a planning decision in Summer 2022.

We have engaged Upright on a number of occasions for extensive extension and remodelling projects at our property in Reigate. The most recent project comprised of a very large 2 story extension & remodelling project incorporating an annex for a family member. Upright have carried out similar projects for a number of our neighbours in the road & have certainly built a good reputation in this area.
