Swing Gate Lane

Two storey side and rear extensions at Swing Gate Lane, Berkhamsted.

The project involved extensions and improvements to a property for a local landlord, Lindisfarne Properties. At first floor level the extension provides an additional bedroom and ensuite to the rear with a glazed juliet balcony providing views from the bedroom to the garden.

To the ground floor the rear extension provides an open-plan kitchen and dining area with a roof light over a vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors opening onto a new rear patio. Structural glass balustrades have been provided to the patio to give clear views of the garden and the rear of the property has been finished in white silicone render. to give a modern appearance.

Sargeant Architects were responsible for administering the building contract between the Employer and Contractor and the project was complete in February 2016. Sargeant Architects were also appointed by the attached owner to design a single storey rear extension with a similar rendered finish which also features a low profile metal composite roof.
