4D Studio Architects Richmond have secured another Full Planning Permission in Richmond.
The extension to the clients home designed by our residential architects comprises a self-contained side extension that will replace the existing garage providing additional accommodation to include a living room, kitchen-diner, bedroom and bathroom.
The extension will provide much needed additional space for the family and will be accessed through its own front door from the front driveway. Entry will be into a hallway which leads into the new accommodation and also gives access to the existing main house.
The ground floor will consist of a bedroom, kitchen, utility room, study and living room. A set of double doors along the rear elevation will lead out to the rear garden.
The existing brick wall to the front driveway will be rebuilt. All elevations to the proposed extension will be rendered to match the main house. The pitched roof will consist of tiles which will also match the main house along with double glazed windows.
In their reasons for granting planning permission the London Borough of Richmond stated,
“The proposal has been considered in the light of the Development Plan, comments from
statutory consultees and third parties (where relevant) and compliance with
Supplementary Planning Guidance as appropriate. It has been concluded that there is
not a demonstrable harm to interests of acknowledged importance caused by the
development that justifies withholding planning permission.”
In securing planning permission, a detailed arboriculture exercise was undertaken to ensure that the siting of the new building and the design of its foundations do not harm an existing magnificent mature horse chestnut tree located in the garden. Foundations will be piled and there will be no excavation in the tree root zone. The tree will be protected during construction with the Local Planning Authority and architect meeting on site to agree that protective measures are in place prior to construction.
