Text by RRA Architects: Located in a sought after residential road in leafy Kew Gardens, West London; this substantial extension and refurbishment project to a 1900s semi-detached property adds a generously-volumed rear extension, two-storey side extension and loft conversion.

The design opens up to a garden-facing kitchen & family room and, with careful planning, has added a music room, study and media room. Upstairs, the bedrooms have been transformed with the addition of a new bathroom and en-suite. We also extended into the loft space, creating a large bedroom with its own shower-room. This top room has the best views of the house; looking out over the newly landscaped garden and on to a verdant cemetery. To make the upper floors’ views even better, we incorporated a green roof on the rear extension.
