By building a side in-fil extension, we created a large open-plan kitchen-diner, which brought more light into this home's adjoining lounge.
Tamineh wanted a bigger first-floor bedroom, so we extended the space above the Kitchen to create the upstairs space she wanted, and also refurbished her bathroom.
After nearly a decade of living in their Kensington and Chelsea terrace, Sue and Chris Harris thought it was about time they got around to updating their loft conversion.
The Victorian mid terrace property in Fulham had been untouched since the 1970s and required a complete overhaul. We added a small side in-fil extension and a mansard loft conversion and refurbished all the rooms within the property.
Initially, Paul wanted a small side extension to create a utility room and dining room and an extensive loft conversion to create two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. He then asked us to reconfigure and redecorate the entire property.
For Ajay, we built a single-storey rear extension with a flat roof, incorporating the existing kitchen to create a large communal space. We also installed a new deck in the rear garden and refurbished the ground-floor bathroom.
When Richard and Sarah Haywood bought their semi-detached home they always knew an extension was on the cards. The house’s dated and traditional style, with individual rooms for cooking, eating and relaxing, was not for them. ‘We wanted the main living space to be open-plan,’ said Richard.
A complete refurbishment of a 1930s semi detached property. We built a double storey side extension, single storey rear extension and loft conversion including the complete refurbishment of all the rooms in the property.
Keith wanted to extend their existing Loft Conversion to add an en-suite bathroom. The dormer was created and the bathroom finished within 6 weeks from the commencement of works.
Philip and Linda wanted to make the most of their loft space to create a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Their neighbours also wanted to have the same improvements made, so the work was done at the same time.
Nicola Harmer was one client who knew exactly what she wanted, right from the start. ‘We didn’t want anything grand,’ she said. ‘Just a bedroom with an en suite.’
Zoe wanted a brand new look for her home. We carried out a complete refurbishment of the property as well as converting the loft and creating a large single-storey extension to house a new kitchen.
Malcolm wanted a large bedroom with an en-suite in the loft space of his home. His neighbours were also after the same thing, so we carried out the work on both properties at the same time.
Wendie and Ben Corris had a simple plan – move one of the walls in their Ealing home to create a bigger family bathroom for them and their two young boys. They hired a building firm and left them to get on with the work. ‘The next thing we knew, they’d completely gutted the whole place,’ said Wendie, leaving the couple understandably devastated, having lost time, money and their faith in the redevelopment process. Their neighbours weren’t happy either, but one of them recommended a new company they thought could handle the work. ‘They told us about Kantec,’ said Wendie. ‘They saved us.’
It was fate that brought Kantec to James Barclay’s Teddington home, where he lives with his wife and two sons. We were undertaking the refurbishment of a listed building further down Park Road, which was a very large, high-pressure project. James lived round the corner. ‘We were looking for builders to do our extension anyway, and I’d seen their boards further up the road and had watched the progress,’ said James. When a member of the team parked right outside his house, James asked for a business card and the relationship began.
Nick wanted to connect the existing dining room, kitchen and conservatory by knocking through all the internal and external walls to make the space more open plan.
When Carrie and Alex Llewelyn finally found Kantec, they had been wanting to put a single-storey rear extension on their Victorian cottage for years. ‘We planned meticulously, so we’d been thinking about it for quite a long time and doing the saving up,’ said Carrie. ‘I definitely knew I wanted a one-stop shop company who had thought out all the contractors for me.’
Vivian wanted a master bedroom in the roof space of her home with an en-suite and study. The windows to the rear of the property were also updated as part of the project.
George wanted a high-end finish for his apartments. We stripped the property back to basics and rebuilt from scratch to deliver sleek, open-plan living with two bedrooms and two bathrooms to meet his expectations.
This Grade II listed building received a full makeover with three extensions to create more space. All rooms to the property needed to be completely refurbished and the garden landscaped.
Hanneke wanted to transform the existing property by reconfiguring the space and adding an extension. The improved layout was then used to house a kitchen-diner, separate utility room, study and shower room.
