Location : Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, UK

Client : Private

Year : 2018-on going

Area : 300 sq.m

stage : Planning granted and Under construction

Site context 

The property is located in a predominantly residential area within the Riverside South Conservation Area and overlooks the River Thames to the west. To the south of the application site is the gated entrance to Kensington Gardens, a cul-de-sac, with a terrace of five units (nos. 22-26 Kensington Gardens) facing on to the Portsmouth Road service road. These dwellings are three storeys in height, with pitched roof, and sit some 7m in front of the forward most part of 2 Portsmouth Road, this restricts views toward the site as one approaches from the south. 

 

Proposal

The development involves the raising of the existing roof of this two storey property to provide a second floor, together with a mezzanine floor for master bedroom. Alterations will also be made to the fenestration on the side elevations (north and south), together with an additional couple of windows at second floor level on the rear elevation, roof lights within the raised roof and solar panels on the south facing roof slope. At the front of the property the building line will be brought forward by one metre, a glazed curtain wall set back behind the forward most projection will be created, front balconies at first, second and mezzanine levels will be installed, and alterations will occur to the previously approved access for vehicles to the basement
