Maisonette | Architects for Kensington & Chelsea | forrester architects

forresterarchitects have submitted a full planning application for a new maisonette extension in Campden Hill Gardens. A modest two-storey extension is to provide a new kitchen to the raised ground floor and sized bedrooms to the lower ground floorThe proposal offers a modern architectural solution which respects and contributes to the immediate context. The rear extension provides a simple form of accommodation drawing from the traditional brickwork fabric to the rear. With an increased floor plate ancillary space was provided without compromising the existing floor plan further.
 
A simple hierarchy of spaces is defined by the arrangement of open plan living spaces and more private bedrooms on the lower ground floor. The maisonette is entered from the existing communal entrance at raised ground level. It aims to provide extra space beyond the current floor plan to overcome the restrictions of the lower and raised ground floorAccess will remain to the rear garden terrace from each of the new bedrooms providing daylight and natural ventilation.
 
The existing facade will be refurbished as part of the refurbishment respecting the style and detailing of the original period property.
