New Forest Redevelopment
Winter 2015/16


The transformation of this house in a beautiful paddock location in the New Forest will begin when construction commences in the Spring of 2016. The existing property is to be upgraded with the re-organisation of the interior and exterior with complementary extensions expanding the size of the property.

Upgrading the fabric and the interior arrangements of this property will transform the tired existing facilities and improve the living arrangements for the owner. Sensitive changes are proposed to this seventies property which is located in a conservation area within the New Forest.

The detailed design of this small part of a fascinating local listed building has provided opportunities that may unlock the potential to achieve an exciting but sustainable future for this property.

The exploded perspective illustrates how it is intended to realise new spaces internally and to provide a sensitive addition to the existing group of buildings.

As the cellular layout of the bungalow has been revisited to create an open plan environment this has required substantial demolition of the interior. The adjacent image illustrates the extent to which it was necessary to provide temporary support of the structure. The loft has been upgraded and the staircase has been relocated into the extension permitted under the planning approval.

Following completion of the structural works and the new envelope for the extension, windows and doors have been replaced to the existing property and an extensive upgrade of the internal lighting finishes and decoration. Bespoke lighting designs and integrated media solutions have been incorporated together with intelligent heating controls and emergency sensors. The project will be completed this Spring.

Everton approvals, new residential and historic buildings
Summer 2015


In Everton, collaboration with the client resulted in proposals for the complete re-organisation of the interor to more effciently use the available space creating a contemporary living environment. Relocation of bedrooms into a thermally effcient extension provides more comfortable accommodation and opening up the foor plate has permitted the upgrading of the structure to comply with regulations. After receiving Planning and Building Regulations approvals the construction work was tendered this summer. Amongst other projects, plans are ongoing for development of a small urban site with proposed designs for two new build semi-detached dwellings. FAL have also undertaken research into the history of a local Heritage asset preparing initial designs for development proposals.

Range of works add new to old
Spring 2015


Fitzgerald Architecture (FAL) created a Granny Annex in 2014. Approached again by the owner of this property we obtained approval for a larger homes extension allowing this client to realise more development potential for this dwelling. Designs were developed for works to the curtilage for an attractive grade II listed building and following contact by the owner of a semi-detached bungalow in the historic centre of Everton we set about the holistic design of the complete redevelopment of this property.
