Two Storey Garden Extension | Architects for Camden | West Hampstead, London
A two storey rear extension is proposed to a fine West Hampstead maisonette, to replace the inadequate existing extension. The new design will rationalise the hierarchy of the maisonette with living rooms to the raised ground floor and bedrooms to the lower ground floor. In planning terms, the 45 degree rule has been applied as a guide to determine an acceptable form for the new rear garden extension to prevent undue loss of daylight to neighbouring properties, to avoid excessive overshadowing of gardens, and preserve a reasonable standard of outlook.
