Rear-Facing Extensions

Given the architectural layout of many listed buildings and houses in the UK, rear-facing extensions have become a popular choice. With a significant amount of garden or patio space at the rear, these extensions can be a transformative addition, converting outdoor areas into valuable interior space. If you're looking to create a new room or expand an existing one with a garden view, this is the ideal project for you.

Side-Return Extensions

If your home has underutilised outdoor space or an alleyway at the side of the building, a side-return could help you maximise this part of your property. Although they generally offer less space than rear extensions, side-return extensions can still add a few metres to your interior, helping you enlarge your downstairs without sacrificing green space.

Similar to the heritage building repairs, heritage building maintenance and listed building refurbishments we work on around the county, side-returns are best suited to older properties from the Edwardian and Victorian eras.

Wraparound Extensions

Also known as L-shaped extensions due to the shape they create, wraparound extensions combine rear extensions and side-returns to give you excellent design flexibility. You can use these projects to develop incredible open-plan layouts, create two brand-new rooms, add storage space or simply increase your existing living space.

Some customers choose to combine a wraparound with a new bathroom or kitchen installation project to improve the functionality of their homes.
