An existing three bedroom dwelling in Ipswich, Suffolk which was refurbished and extended to provide a modern five bedroom family home for its new owners is now complete.

The brief, was to provide a side and rear extension to cater for a new Utility, Study, open plan Living Room and Kitchen to open up and engage with the garden, along with two new first floor Bedrooms and En-suite. The existing dwelling was extensively refurbished to provide a re-modeled Family Bathroom, Dining Room and Sitting Room.

The project also consisted of upgrading the existing timber windows, and installing a striking green roof to the new rear extension.

The scheme was recently acknowledged by Ipswich Borough Council Building Control as an exemplary example of successfully extending a domestic property, and was put forward as an entry to the LABC East Anglia Building Excellence awards.
