House 9 Muswell Hill

This rear extension and loft conversion project  in Muswell Hill, London, is a unique endeavour that seamlessly integrates modern living with the historical charm of the area. Overlooking the Rookfield Estate Conservation Area, this project represents a significant contribution to contemporary residential architecture in a historical setting.

Design and Visualisation: Achieving Fast Planning Approval

The project’s initial phase focused on designing a space suitable for a modern family of four while respecting the architectural integrity of the area. Achieving planning permission on our first submission was a key success, reflecting our understanding of Haringey’s architectural guidelines and our commitment to quality and precision.

Utilising 3D photo-real renders, we provided our clients with an immersive preview of the proposed design. This approach ensured clear communication and alignment with the family’s vision, making them an integral part of the design process.

A highlight of this project is the collaboration with specialist joiners from Hanstholm, Denmark, to create a bespoke kitchen and joinery. This aspect of the project brought a touch of Danish elegance to the heart of London, showcasing a fusion of international craftsmanship with local design.

Open Plan Living: A Family-Centric Design

Central to our design was the creation of an open-plan kitchen and dining area. This space was designed to maximise natural light and create an inviting atmosphere for family and social gatherings. Large windows and strategic placement of skylights ensure that the area is well-lit throughout the day, creating a warm and welcoming environment.

Our approach to the rear extension and loft conversion was to respect the heritage of Muswell Hill while introducing contemporary design elements. This combination ensures that the living space is not only aesthetically pleasing but also meets the needs of a modern lifestyle.

Sustainability was a core consideration in this project. We incorporated sustainable features such as underfloor heating, carefully selected materials and automated smart home technologies to minimise environmental impact. This approach to sustainable living is not just about reducing the carbon footprint; it’s about creating healthier, more comfortable living spaces.

Project Execution with VR Property Development

The appointment of VR Property Development Contractors was crucial in realising this project. Their expertise in handling delicate architectural projects ensured that the extension and conversion were completed efficiently, on time, and within budget. This collaboration reflects our commitment to working with professionals who share our values of precision and excellence.

The completion of the Muswell Hill project was marked by the satisfaction and joy of the family. Their positive feedback underscores our success in creating a space that meets their needs and exceeds their expectations. The project has provided them with a home that is not just a living space but a reflection of their lifestyle and preferences.
