New refurbishment and extension of 5 bed house, North Oxford

New refurbishment and extension of 5 bed house, North Oxford

This was the first project undertaken by Renelec Chalgrove for us. It involved the complete stripping out (down to the bare shell) of a 4 bedroom 1950s property, raising the roof to allow a loft conversion, rear and side extensions and complete refit. The standout part of the house is the kitchen-dining space with its curved rear extension. This was to place the focus firmly where the clients wanted it – this view of the garden and the interface with the interior wouldn’t have worked with a rectangular extension. This project also benefitted from the 5% VAT threshold (rather than 20%) as it hadn’t been lived in for 2 years prior to works commencing.

Contractor: Renelec Chalgrove
Architect: PPA Architecture
Engineer: Tarik Beshir – THB Consulting
Budget: £300,000
Clients: completely fantastic!

New double infill domestic extension and loft conversion in Iffley Fields, Oxford

New double infill domestic extension and loft conversion in Iffley Fields, Oxford

Here’s a sneaky peak at a new extension and loft conversion in Iffley Fields, Oxford, where neighbours are cooperating to get a better result. So many clients, especially in Oxford, want to fill in the ‘L’ shape of their terraced houses to make a larger kitchen and dining room. By coordinating this with neighbours, issues such as rights to light can easily be overcome and larger extensions designed at a result.

New glazed extension in East Oxford

New glazed extension in East Oxford

This small but perfectly formed extension was interesting as the structure was formed from external glulam beams, allowing the clients to open up the corner of the house to better relate to the garden. Fabulous joinery from Martin Whitworth (as usual) and a great team all round, helped by having lovely clients!

This new light and spacious extension in Jericho over 4 floors brought the kitchen up from the original basement, making it relate to the garden and the rest of the house much better. The development for the owner-occupier clients incorporated basement bedroom, new kitchen/dining/living space, and bathroom and first and loft floor.
