bungalow transformation canterbury

  An impressive house extension Canterbury

Situated in the idyllic location of Bossingham, near Canterbury.  Our team of experienced architectural designers embarked on a remarkable architectural journey.  To transform a modest bungalow into a truly extraordinary family home. After thoroughly researching the work of other local architects in the area.  Our goal was to produce a spectacular house extension Canterbury design that not only stood out but also maximized the potential of the bungalow.  This ambitious architectural project involved a comprehensive renovation that revitalized the property.  Resulting in a spacious and contemporary residence with sustainability at its core.

To achieve this, our architectural firm carefully considered the bungalow’s structure and implemented eco-friendly features throughout. The outcome: expanding the bungalow into an impressive two-story house extension, accompanied by a generous rear extension. Our skilled team did what no other architects could do.   Meticulously planned and executed transformations, adhering to the highest standards of architectural design.

Architectural Drawings

Starting wit architectural drawings, our team of architects closely collaborated with the client.  To fully realize their vision for the transformed bungalow and house extension in Canterbury. Drawing upon their expertise and creative insights, our architect team carefully considered every aspect.  From the layout and functionality to the aesthetic details that contributed to a high-end design. The architectural drawings served as a roadmap for the entire project, guiding our architect team and builders throughout the construction and renovation process.

As visitors step through the entrance, they encounter an awe-inspiring oversized door that immediately sets the tone for the remarkable transformation within. The grand double-height lobby, featuring a bespoke curved timber staircase, serves as a focal point of architectural excellence. The team meticulously planned and executed every detail, from the lobby’s dimensions to the staircase’s intricate design, ensuring a stunning entrance that captures attention and sets the stage for the rest of the home.


Our architect team dedicated significant attention to the ground floor layout.  Ensuring that it provided both functionality and flexibility to accommodate various sleeping arrangements.  Including those for frail or disabled guests. The architectural drawings allowed our architects to carefully plan the placement of bedrooms and bathrooms.  Considering factors such as accessibility, natural light, and privacy. We paid meticulous attention to doorways, and circulation space to ensure ease of movement and a seamless flow throughout the ground floor.

Additionally, our team of architects incorporated a spacious family bathroom with accessibility in mind, carefully considering elements such as level thresholds to enhance ease of use. The architectural drawings guided the placement of fixtures and fittings in the bathroom, ensuring functionality and an aesthetically pleasing, high-end design that reflects the overall style of the home.

Rear Extension

Towards the rear of the property, we strategically positioned the expansive kitchen and dining area below.  The double-height space to create a seamless and inviting transition into the living area. Our team of architects collaborated closely with the client to ensure that the kitchen was not only a functional space but also a focal point of the home.  Designed with high-end finishes, top-of-the-line appliances, and ample storage. The dining area was thoughtfully situated to take advantage of natural light and provide a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living spaces.  Utilising our expertise in spatial planning and architectural design.  We created a harmonious and inviting environment that met the client’s needs and exceeded their expectations.

Every aspect of the architectural design aimed to capture and showcase the breathtaking views of the picturesque countryside. The architectural drawings guided the placement of windows and the design of the living spaces.   Ensuring that residents could enjoy the scenic vistas from various vantage points within the home. We carefully considered the orientation of rooms, placement of windows.  The incorporation of outdoor living spaces to maximize the connection between the interior and the natural surroundings.

Transitioning to the first floor, the staircase reveals a captivating gallery-suspended walkway that gracefully overlooks the entrance foyer, infusing the architectural space with an enchanting sense of light and openness. The architectural drawings allowed our team of architects to carefully plan the dimensions and proportions of the walkway, ensuring that it not only provided a visual connection but also created a sense of harmony and continuity between the different levels of the home.

Two Storey Extension

The first floor features a generously proportioned master suite that exudes luxury and sophistication.  Complete with a stylish dressing area and an opulent master bathroom. Our team of architects utilised their expertise in spatial planning and interior design to create a master suite.  That provided a private retreat for the homeowners while taking advantage of natural light and the scenic views. The placement of windows, the dimensions of the rooms, and the design of the bathroom fixtures and fittings were all carefully considered to create a luxurious and functional space that surpassed the client’s expectations.

To further enhance the architectural design of the master suite, we created a private terrace, providing a serene retreat where residents can bask in the scenic vistas offered by the adjacent conservation area. The architectural drawings guided the placement of the terrace, ensuring that it seamlessly integrated into the design of the master suite, offering a private outdoor space that complements the luxurious interior.

Bungalow Transformation

The external transformation of the bungalow and house extension Canterbury is equally remarkable.  Carefully planned to harmonize with the overall aesthetic vision of our architecture team. The architectural drawings served as a guide for replacing the outdated roof with an elegant slate roof.  Seamlessly blending the old and the new. The new two-story rear extension, featuring a sleek zinc roof.  Adds a contemporary allure to the architectural composition.  While complementing the existing structure. Emphasizing sustainability and ecological harmony.  The architectural drawings guided the design of the single-story rear extension.  This showcases a living wall that not only adds visual interest but also acts as a natural heat absorber, contributing to the environmental balance of the site.

Landscaped gardens include raised beds crafted from cor-ten planters that skillfully delineate functional spaces.  While adding a touch of refined elegance to the overall architectural landscape. The architectural drawings guided the placement of the raised beds, ensuring that they were seamlessly integrated into the design of the gardens.  Creating distinct areas for relaxation, entertainment, and gardening. The design of the gardens was carefully planned to maximize the use of space while creating a harmonious connection.  Between the architecture and the natural surroundings. Our design team collaborated closely with landscape designers to ensure that the gardens complemented the overall architectural vision.  Resulting in a cohesive and visually stunning outdoor space.

Sustainable Design

Demonstrating our commitment to sustainable living, our architectural design incorporates a natural swimming pool in the rear area. This innovative feature harnesses the power of water-cleansing plants and a ground-source heat pump, ensuring minimal energy consumption for both the house and the pool. Our team of architects collaborated closely with engineers and environmental experts to seamlessly integrate sustainable features into the architectural design.   Ensuring that the home would meet the highest standards of energy efficiency and environmental responsibility.

Moreover, we fortified the external walls of the house with high-performance insulation, exceeding the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations.  The architectural drawings guided the selection and placement of insulation materials.  Ensuring that the home achieved optimal thermal performance while complying with building regulations. Our team of architects worked closely with builders and contractors to ensure the installation of insulation to the highest standards.  Guaranteeing comfort and energy efficiency for the homeowners.


This transformative architectural project stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication as architects to turning a humble bungalow into a magnificent, sustainable haven for modern family living. From the initial architectural drawings to the final execution, our team of architects carefully considered every aspect and meticulously crafted each detail. The result is an exceptional outcome that seamlessly combines contemporary style, functionality, and sustainability, all while embracing the serene beauty of the natural surroundings.
