Fulham Wrap Around Extensions
Shape Architecture has designed and built many wrap around extensions in Fulham. These have often formed the ground floor part of a basement extension project and have been successful in creating light filled spacious and contemporary kitchen dining rooms.
Fulham Wrap Around Extensions: Computer Modelling
In each instance we have used 3D computer graphics to explore various design options as this is the best way to communicate clearly to our clients. We are also able to show the movement of daylight in a space at any time of year. When designing wrap around extensions in Fulham or London borough, this is a very useful design tool. The size, number and location of rooflights in the roof of the wrap around extension can be designed in an effective and rigorous manner to ensure daylight in and views out are maximised.
Fulham Rear Extensions and Sliding Folding Doors
The addition of a rear extension provides the opportunity to improve both the visual and physical connection between the interior and garden beyond. This can be achieved through the construction of a wide glazed opening incorporating sliding folding doors or a combination of feature window with sliding folding doors. Once the opening is set then the decision relates to what door system to specify. Our extensions in Fulham have utilised several different products and these decisions are largely determined by the width of the glazing frame. These tend to be circa 50mm as standard but can be much narrower. The narrow sections cost more. The design principle, whether a sliding system or fewer doors in a folding system, can make for a less cluttered glazed elevation.
Fulham Side Return Extensions
In many of our side return extensions in Fulham we have provided a second link leading directly from the front reception room to the kitchen and offering long views of the garden beyond. We have also integrated utility rooms or study spaces as at a wrap-around extension in Fulham in St Dionis Road.
As architects in Fulham designing a wide range of residential projects of various sizes we are well able to recommend suitable contractors for a competitive tender process and we can run the tender and prepare a report for our clients analysing the pros and cons of each tender return. We also have good working relations with both the Planning and Building Control departments in Fulham.
