Leatherhead Road, Ashtead

A compact extension to a 1930's bungalow in Ashtead, Surrey, completely transforming it from dowdy to "wow". A significant town planning victory, the strong but balanced asymmetrical composition of three new zinc-clad elements persuaded the planners to go against their local policy and allow a non-like-for-like extension with what is, effectively, a normally forbidden box dormer.

On the first floor two new bedrooms and bathrooms were created with a full length glass fronted balcony overlooking the attractive garden. On the ground floor a spacious kitchen / dining / living room replaced a detached single garage, with full length, full height fold-aside doors opening onto a new south facing deck and the garden.
