New Projects Start
With the summer well and truly over Autumn is a popular time for new projects to start. A few of these are listed out below.
Mizen Way – Full house renovation and significant extension to a detached period property on a private road in Cobham. Concept Eight have worked on the project from conception, when the client decided to redevelop and extend their existing house as opposed to moving. We have managed to increase the house by nearly double and rationalised the accommodation circulating around a central void and feature stair. Planning has been successfully obtained even with some localized resistance. We are also undertaking the interior design for this project as well as overseeing the build through to completion.
The Drive – This is the knock down and replacement of a large detached mansion and separate triple garage block with accommodation over on a private road in Cheam. The scheme features stone cladding to the façade with elegant tall windows throughout. Internally there is a triple height feature chimney rising up through the void off the hallway and family room. Formal rooms come off the front with family room, a home theatre and games room to the rear. Externally there is a feature hot tub and extensive outdoor living areas, which are semi covered. On the upper floors there are a series of bedrooms including a large master suite. Concept Eight have undertaken all stages and are retained to oversee the project. We are also undertaking the interior design for the project.
Wey Road – This house sits on a spectacular site on the river Wey, overlooking greenbelt and woodland on the other side. The new build 3 storey house will replace an unmodernised bungalow which sat on the plot for a number of years. Our house makes the most of the setting by opening up the rear of the house with extensive glass as well as a feature double height living area served by a double sided fire place. At the front there is a formal hallway with a feature cantilevered open tread stair and void serving the front reception rooms. To the rear is the social kitchen with feature wine gallery, family living areas and lounge opening up to an extensive outdoor terrace, the lawn and riverside boathouse. Concept Eight are undertaking all stages of the project as well as the interior design to the key spaces. Due to a tight project program we have split the trades and works have commenced on the piling while the design is being finalized.
