Denning Road, Hampstead NW3

STS was successful in obtaining a planning permission for a construction of a large basement courtyard extension in 2011 in line with the recently introduced Camden Council basements supplementary planning policies.

Following planning, we have prepared a full set of structural and building regulations drawings, and the construction method statement. This was sufficient to also secure party wall agreements.

In addition to design services, STS has also prepared a full schedule of works, and has administered the tender process to select the main contractor who was appointed in mid 2012.

The construction works are now well under way, with the anticipated completion in mid to late 2013. Please browse the photo gallery below to follow the progress of construction.

The existing house is spread over three stores – ground, first floor and loft and currently features 4 bedrooms (including one recently created loft bedroom). The proposal is to convert the house into one five bedroom flat at the ground floor, a two bedroom flat at the first floor and one studio in the loft. The proposal also seeks to utilise existing space below the existing rear terrace more effectively by excavating to create a new basement. This increases amenity space to the lower unit allowing more amenity space in the existing garden to be allocated to the flats above. Continue reading
