Glebelands Road

Project Description:

Architectural design services for a detached bungalow in Sale.

Proposed front extension, internal remodelling and loft conversion first floor extension.

Location:

Glebelands Road, Sale, Trafford Council

Scope of Works:
  • Existing plans and elevations
  • Proposed design layout options
  • Householder planning application submission
  • Acting as agent during the determination period
  • Building regulations drawings

We had done an initial concept proposal for this client at another property in Sale. Having decided upon moving property, the return client discussed with us the scope for a loft conversion to their newly purchased Bungalow. The existing property was located on a generous plot and had some additions and alterations over the years, but none of the changed had sought to increase the overall floor area.

Our initial appraisal identified that the height within the loft was sufficient to accommodate a conversion, with tolerances considered for increasing the build up of the loft floor and insulating below the existing rafters. The position of the stairs was the key consideration in making the most efficient use of the space as it had to be located fairly centrally to minimise disruption to the ground floor level spaces as well as allowing access to bedrooms at first floor. At first floor we calculated the headroom required so we were giving the client the true impression of what would be considered as useable standing space and what would be spaces for furniture or storage. During the building regulation drawing stage we produced cross sections through the stairs and roof to ensure that what was being proposed in plan was achievable.

Rather than proposing a dormer to the larger bedroom, we referenced the adjacent rear gable so that new additions would be complimentary to the house. This allowed an increased first floor footprint that was sufficient for a king sized bed. An en suite and additional WC were achieved at this level.

The ground floor originally had 3 bedrooms, however given the 3 additional bedrooms added at first floor we were able to combine two bedrooms into a generous master suite with dressing area and en-suite. With the space lost as a result of the new stairs, we offset this with a small side infill extension between the existing front lounge and garage. This offered back the space to the front lounge and facilitated a small utility to be positioned below the stairs.

The house appears relatively unchanged as viewed from Glebelands Road, however internally the proposed works turned this modest single level, 3 bedroom property into a two storey 5 bedroom home which was a significant increase in useable space and value.
