The Brief

Remodel the entire house to form a luxury family home

Our clients had purchased a tired 1960’s dormer bungalow and wanted create an expansive family home that enjoyed the south facing garden and large plot. The dwelling was situated in a semi-rural street just outside Topsham which straddles the countryside and urban environments. Having initially been told by an Independent Planning Consultant that the project would never secure permission, New Space Architecture took over. Our proposed works included an entire new storey (for proper sized bedrooms/expansive master suite) a large single storey rear extension (to provide a colossal open plan living/kitchen dining space with access into the garden) and extensive remodel of the front elevation (to create a more pleasing road frontage). Other extensive developments had happened on street and so we felt that the proposals could work very comfortably with the right design and could be balanced with the rest of the street. After a rigorous design process, extensive discussions and an on site meeting with the Planning Officer (along with the production of additional site elevations and other justification drawings) planning permission was secured for the scheme. This was a real win and the client did a fantastic job of managing the construction process himself to complete this stunning remodel.




The guys at New Space are so professional from start to finish. The design met the brief, they fought the planners and won and the technical drawings were outstanding. So impressed!
