Preparing to submit planning for a dwelling in Bishopston

We have recently been working on sketch proposals for a ground floor rear extension in Bishopston, Bristol. Following a series of design proposals and meetings with the client to narrow down the design and layout, we are now ready to submit the final proposal for planning.

The design seeks to reconfigure the entire ground floor by introducing a W.C. and a large utility room in the centre of the dwelling. A large kitchen/diner is located within the new extension with views over the garden. The lounge and a snug is positioned on the street facing side of the dwelling.

The height difference between the existing ground floor and the garden allowed us to develop a number of spaces through the use of a split level design. The kitchen/dining room is two steps down from the rest of the ground floor. A semi-sheltered landscaped patio, with seating and planting, is positioned adjacent to the extension and 3 steps up from the rest of the garden. The design developed by sharing sketches, plans, and elevations with the client. We also share a 3D model of the proposal which can be viewed from your own home on either a computer or tablet. The 3D model provides an immersive experience by allowing you to ‘walkthrough’ the design proposal to get a feel for what the end result could look like. Through online and in-person meetings, we were able to discuss feedback to progress the design to the next stage.

We look forward to taking this project through planning and onto the technical design stage. We’ll continue to publish updates as they develop.
