Low Fell, Gateshead

Project type: Rear Extension

Design in detail

Works have now finished on site for a new rear extension in Low Fell, Gateshead. This large 65sqm extension to the rear of an end of terrace house will create an open plan kitchen/ living/ dining area fit for everyday family living.

The house was built before the 1890s and has thick sandstone walls. It neighbours a Grade II listed building which used to be Sir Joseph Swan’s (inventor of incandescent light bulb) house from 1869-1883.

Our design created a large contemporary flat roof extension with an open plan living area. The original scullery has been retained and converted into a utility and downstairs WC.

To compliment the dark tones of the existing sandstone walls the extension is vertically clad in a charred larch. The delightful open plan space is now flooded with light from a large atlas rooflight along with a series smaller rooflights creating a uniformly lit space.

Would recommend to anyone needing plans drawn. Alistair and his team have been very good throughout. Their experience and expertise meant that they managed to design exactly what we wanted, all within building regulations. We got a lawful planning certificate straight away. All plans were done very quickly, and all our questions or request were answered straight away. Will use them again if ever I need more plans drawn.
