A house extension can be beneficial in several scenarios
You may need additional rooms for your growing family. You might want to open up an existing space to improve your home’s layout. No matter your needs, Plan Masters are highly experienced in extending properties! We’ll realise your vision for a beautiful, liveable extension that’s tailored to your lifestyle.
Why choose Plan Masters for your House Extension?
Extending not only gives you more space but also boosts your home’s appeal and can potentially increase its value. In our years of operation, however, we’ve found that many people are discouraged from undertaking a house extension project; they worry it will be wildly expensive or prone to setbacks. If you choose to hire Plan Masters, your fears will be laid to rest. We have the know-how and experience to ensure your extension project runs smoothly and your design is brought to life beautifully.
We’ve worked with clients all across London on both modern and period properties. We’re proficient in making the best use of space and in seamlessly blending new architecture with old. In short, we’ll design an extension that’s meticulously planned and unique to you! You can choose from our range of extension styles to achieve your dream space; one that serves your needs and wows you every time you come home.
We understand your goals and know how to achieve them
We work closely with you at every stage so you’re well-informed and feel confident about your project. The plans we create will be of the highest quality, tailored to your needs and aspirations while adhering to strict local building regulations. You may already have an idea of how you want your house extension to look and function; we’ll consider this but also the costs, planning constraints and viability to help you avoid disappointment.
The specialist team at Plan Masters apply their skills, years of experience and exceptional attention to detail to every project. This, coupled with our full design service and superior customer care, makes us the leading name in property extensions in London.
We aim to exceed expectations, not budgets
Everyone deserves a wonderful space in which they can live and thrive. While we deliver only the best architectural services and the most impactful designs, we do so within the realms of your budget. The solutions we offer are always realistic in relation to the client’s funds, which is why we’re trusted and chosen by homeowners throughout London.
We're flexible - and successful!
Being familiar with a range of extension styles, we can design a completely bespoke space that suits your lifestyle and taste. From concept designs to technical drawings, we work to maximise the cost-efficiency of your project while minimising delays. We’ve worked with many different local authorities and have a deep understanding of how planning applications are decided. On-site risks and build viability are both considered to ensure approval of your proposed development.
Types of House Extensions
1. Rear Extension: these run across the back of the home’s existing ground floor, usually to add kitchen/dining or entertaining space. They typically link with the original structure via a larger opening on the back wall, with a steel beam or steel “picture frame” solution.
2. Side Return Extension: these require careful planning as they can impact the natural light in the central room of the property. It’s worth rethinking the balance of the entire house as this can create exciting, seamless open-plan options with lots of natural light.
3. Wrap-Around Extensions: these merge both of the above styles, resulting in the creation of a truly spectacular space. Sound construction of structural engineering and ceiling heights helps maximise light and design flow for a natural-looking extension.
Your perfect extension starts with professional planning
The professional designers at Plan Masters will take your brief and turn it into something amazing. We work with your needs, desires and budget in mind to deliver the best possible results and a space you’ll love to live in.
Following an initial survey of your property, we’ll create concept designs based on your brief. These designs will take into consideration Local Planning Policies, Supplementary Planning Guidance, The London Plan, party wall matters, daylight and ventilation and more. Structural requirements will also be considered at this stage to ensure the submitted designs are realistic, thus allowing the progression of the project.
We'll expertly handle the planning application process
Once you’ve approved the layout and design, we prepare planning drawings, a design and access statement and the supporting documents required for a planning application to the local authority.
If your house has permitted development rights, we’ll work accordingly to show your proposal falls within the guidelines. If your project requires planning consent, we’ll apply on your behalf to maximise your chances of success. We have years of experience with gaining planning permission in Redbridge and the whole of London.
We'll support you every step of the way
When your project has been given the go-ahead and the construction work begins, we’ll be by your side to guide you through the process and any setbacks. Our continued professional support will give you peace of mind! It will also allow you to focus less on the technical details and more on picturing yourself in your amazing, extended home.
