Situated in the hills overlooking Dorking, in area characterised by Arts and Crafts homes, this project provides a two-storey side and single-storey rear extension to an existing detached property, increasing the area of the house by 50%.
The extension replaces an existing garage outbuilding, and improves the appearance and street presence of the house through the use of high-quality materials, careful detailing and sensitive massing.
Planning Permission was granted in 2016 and the house completed in early 2018.
"We are so pleased that Useful Studio worked with us to create a bold design combined with practical ideas for what now feels like our home for life. Their insight and understanding of our needs were translated into the finished product and we are so happy with the result. All of our friends and family have been 'wowed' by the striking kitchen design – the exposed brick, the vaulted ceiling and the additional living space – it really is the hub of our home now."
