Progress on a new extension in Wimbledon
Building work is well underway on a new extension in the Wimbledon West conservation area. While we wait for the windows to arrive, tiling has begun on the roof. Once the windows are in the next step will be plastering the interior.
Even in the early stages of the project, you can see how bright and spacious the finished family home will be, with visual links throughout the house – light floods from roof lights in the attic down to the foot of the stairs…
The building work involves an extension to a current house enlarging it on the east side and into the roof space. The design adds extra rooms and opens the back of the house out into the garden, consequently allowing much more natural light into the house. The finished house will have 6 bedrooms while still allowing for multiple family rooms and an open first floor landing.

Planning approved for new flats in Wimbledon
Merton council has approved planning for 7 new flats in Wimbledon. The new development consists of 7 1-bed flats within Wimbledon Town Center. The re-purposing of office space within the existing building will provide housing for a new demographic due to its proximity to transport links.

The plans maintain the existing facade while refurbishing the interior to create the flats. The combination of renovation and extension of the offices transforms the interior space into open plan and modern flats. The flats optimize natural light while an external private courtyard will provide a level of amenity space.

The non-profit project began in 1992 with aims to promote public appreciation of London’s architecture. The initiative opens over 800 spaces to those who wouldn’t otherwise have access. It is a positive means of engaging the community in a dialogue on architecture in addition to stimulating an awareness and ability to make informed judgments on the architecture which surrounds us.
“Buildings surround us in a city but the one thing we do not learn about in schools is the fabric of a place, such as the structure, framework or composition. The urban fabric of our community has such a strong impact on us on an everyday basis”

Progress on new build helped along by the sunshine
We’ve been keeping you posted on our blog on the family home on Wilberforce Way, and there is yet more progress on new build!
Since the last update there has been a great deal of progress. All of the external and internal walls are up while the roof is beginning to take shape.
The sunshine is helping as work continues to complete the external shell before winter sets in.
The contractors have been working tirelessly as a result the roof is looking imminent. And it won’t be too long before the external pointing and windows are in too.
