Extension/Refurb, Private House, Gosforth
This conservation area project began as a relatively modest extension to the existing rear elevation and introduced a new and improved dining facility with the kitchen as an open plan area; it then progressed into a full refurb of the house with attic conversion.
New M&E services were installed throughout the property with re-decoration applied to all rooms. Several existing and new bathrooms were fitted out and two new bedrooms were added with more storage and a further en-suite to the attic. To access this loft space AMA designed a bespoke contemporary staircase, taking inspiration the original 1920′s solid oak piece. The kitchen was designed and fitted with bespoke ceilings, fittings and corian worktops. This new, light filled area included underfloor heating and a dining space for everday use.
The exterior was completely re-decorated with new paint to the timber and render, whilst new windows and doors in an original style were fitted. The building had also been underpinned in earlier stages of the construction contract. To the rear, the extension takes a more contemporary style picking up strong lines of the existing windows and balconies, with modern materials and bi-fold doors to create an inside-outside space for the family. The original planned extension is still the masterpiece of the project as it provides a space all the family can use, all day, all night.
