Double storey extension London Wimbledon SW19

This extension project in Wimbledon, south London, added approximately 67m to a Victorian property. Designed by Voon Wong & Benson Ltd architects, the plan involved seamlessly blending a timeworn house with a modern-looking rear extension. The scheme was quite demanding in a structural sense. It involved very deep trench foundations, a two-storey box frame section; extensive steel work, structural openings and repairs. Interiors were dramatically different in the older part of the property, compared to the new extension. We were able to create very modern bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen with quite a traditional look. A huge frameless skylight in the living area helped give the property a quiet, minimalistic look as well as a lot of natural light.
The older part of the house was completely refurbished yet maintained its old world appeal. We rejuvenated traditional covings and renovated existing ceiling roses. New Victorian-style fire doors were also installed to retain the property’s Victorian ambience.
In each room our carpentry specialists created fine pieces of bespoke furniture and fittings with an oak finish; and an old staircase was fitted with new oak cladding. The heating system was revamped with discreet trench radiators and under floor heating in the kitchen and dining area. Traditional thermostatic valves have been replaced by motorised programmable valves; to make the heating system much more efficient. The house was completely rewired and new LED downlights were installed. On top of that; the whole ground floor was relayed, giving it a traditional oak finish.
