Hackney N16 Kitchen extension

Project description | Hackney N16 Kitchen extension

Addition of a single storey side extension to create an enlarged kitchen and dining area; full house renovation and refurbishment.

Design considerations and Hackney planning matters

The site is a three storey terraced dwellinghouse located along the southern side of Osterley Road. The surrounding area is residential in character and it is typified by terraced properties and blocks of flats. However the application site does not contain a listed building and is not located in a conservation area.

Externally we wanted to amend a previous planning approval to include the reduction in the number of rooflights along the side roof slope above the side infill extension. We also wanted to slight increase the height of the flat roofed element of the extension to improve the internal headheight.

In the report the planners noted that:

“The proposed reduction in the number of roof lights would be considered acceptable as there would be no increased impact on the design of the property or the character of the surrounding area as a resulf of the reduction.

In addition, the increase in the height of the existing rear extension by 0.22 metres, so that the development measures 2.96 metres in height in total, would be in keeping with the height of extensions in the immediate area, including the total height of the approved side infill extension, which measure 3 metres in height in total. The proposed increase in height would be modest and would not result in a significant or detrimental impact on the amenity enjoyed by the neighbouring residents.

Given the modest nature of the proposed alterations, the proposed amendment is considered to be non-material in that does not change the character or impacts of the approved development.”

Architectural approach and design matters

The previous approval was considered and carefullyt designed. However it did not maximise the space that could be created under the current planning policy. It also included a rooflight arrangement that did not fit with the internal layout the new homeowners wanted to create.

As a result it required a delicate fine-tuning of the previous proposals. This was needed in order to change the appearance, scale and size of the extension to create more generous internal heights and more specious interiors.

It is not always possible to find small changes that make a larger difference. In this case though we were able to identify what the homeowners needed and we were  able to use our knowledge of the planning policy to help them achieve their perfect space.

During the design development stage we played with a few layouts and ideas to find how best we could organised the kitchen and dining areas. At the same time we focussed on how to create the right balance between functionality, circulation, sight-lines and generous access to natural light.

Demolition of existing single storey rear extension, addition of a rear / side single storey extension, and internal alterations to a single family dwelling

Design considerations and the Hackney planning assessment

The site contains a mid-terrace two storey building. The building is in use as a single dwellinghouse. The surrounding uses are predominantly residential, with a school to the north. The site is not located in a conservation area and does not contain a locally or statutorily listed building.

The principle of altering and extending existing housing stock is supported by local and regional planning policy. In light of this, the proposed development is considered to be acceptable in principle, subject to assessment of other material planning considerations.

Given the scale of the proposed development and appropriate position of the additions it is considered that the proposed development would not result in an unacceptable detrimental impact upon neighbouring occupiers in terms of provision of daylight/outlook, sense of enclosure or overbearing impact, particularly given the the depth of the side extension measuring approx. 2.1m. The proposed windows are considered to be in positions which would not result in levels of overlooking significantly over and above that afforded from existing windows in the property. On this basis it is considered that the proposed development is acceptable in amenity terms.

Conclusions:
The proposed development would be of size, design and materials which would respect the character and appearance of the subject property and would preserve the character and appearance of the surrounding area and would not have an unacceptable detrimental impact on amenity.

Addition of a single storey rear extension, a roof extension and carrying out internal alterations to a single family dwelling

Design considerations and Hackney planning matters

The existing rear extension covered most of the existing garden area and was badly built with thin half-brick think uninsulated external walls. We proposed its demolition to reclaim garden area and its replacement with a small side / rear extension that did not project further than the original rear elevation plane of the property.

A set of new full height sliding folding doors would connect the internal spaces to the new rear garden area and a new flat rooflight was proposed as part of the new side / rear extension.

As part of the alterations we also obtained planning approval to add a full-width and full-height roof extension under Permitted Development; associated alterations included the addition of a new staircase from the first floor to the new loft level.

Our proposals were deemed to be in-keeping with the character of the host building and of the terrace as well. The extension did not affect the amenity of the adjacent properties and we did not propose to alter the access around the front of the building or the access to the property in general.
