Our clients Paul and Nathalie love their North London home but were looking to expand their kitchen and update the interiors throughout the house to enhance the property’s character while also meeting their objectives of having a more substantial and brighter home. We achieved this by adding a large kitchen extension to the rear of the house. The combination of large doors with wood frames and glass panes, and Velux roof-lights allows warmth and natural light into the kitchen. The kitchen extension was designed by Paul Roseman from Alan Cox Associates Barnet. The room interiors were designed by Tom Hughes, who worked closely with the clients to choose the perfect colours and textures for their home. Their vision was turned into reality by our team of talented carpenters, painters and decorators.
We work with some of the best architects in London to offer you a full design and build service, in case you have not got any architectural plans yet. Our architects will first do a site survey before discussing the options with you. If you chose to go ahead with them, they will prepare all the structural and architectural drawings and will even submit a planning application for you if needed. They also offer an optional 3d visualisation of the extension, which will help you get an idea of what your completed extension will look like, including the interiors.
This large kitchen extension in Barnet, North London, was designed by award-winning Alan Cox Associates.
First, we have set up the preliminaries such as the welfare facilities, hoarding, and assessed the site by removing gas, water and electricity supply from the work area to make it safe. After all the safety measures have been put in place, the work can commence.
After our team excavated the foundations and got a go-ahead by the building inspector, we poured in the concrete. We erected temporary steel propping so that we could safely demolish part of the wall. Manufactured steel beams were then fitted as per structural drawings.
Now, it is safe to proceed with the construction of the exterior face brick walls. We have managed to source facing bricks that match the existing house perfectly so that the new extension would seamlessly blend with its surrounding and help the property keep its period charm.
Our clients opted for a pitched roof for their extension. While a pitched roof is usually slightly more expensive than a flat roof, it tends to last longer and looks better on some types of properties.
Wooden doors with glass panels have been fitted to complement the house, while large skylights bring in natural light.
After our engineers had completed the electric fixes and the plumbing, Handmade Kitchen Co. fitted bespoke hand painted kitchen cabinets, and our team laid the wood flooring. We then renovated the interiors throughout the whole house to create a brighter home.
