Chalet bungalow extension
Previously a derelict single-block bungalow sat on this compact site with uninterrupted south coast views. The brief sought to maximise the views and increase the floor area to accommodate an open-plan four-bedroom family home, constructed over two phases.
It was important to not overdevelop the site in order to sustain sufficient external amenity and to preserve a traditional frontage to the street.
“DLM Architects made designing our home a simple and enjoyable process. Their design met our brief perfectly and exceeded our spatial and creative aspirations. We could be confident that no detail was overlooked. They were always on hand to answer our queries and worked seamlessly with our builder. We love our new home!”

Phase 1 was only a small extension to the existing footprint, yet the useable floor area has more than doubled. A flat roof to the rear gives a generous elevated living space with a double height void to the dining area below, and a large opening glazed roof above.
The approved phase 2 can be constructed at any time with minimal disruption. Sitting on a similar footprint to a previously demolished garage block, it will balance the proportion of the phase 1 development.
