This modern residential property can be found in the sought-after Lakeside Crescent area in Brentwood, Essex. Situated in a sought-after location, with nearby amenities and shops, the homeowners of this property can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and green spaces.
Renovated to an exceptional standard under the direction of James Lai from JLArchitecture, the property gained a new roof terrace and a modern family living area with the use of Roofglaze’s Walk-on Flatglass rooflights.
The Project Brief
JLArchitecture undertook this major renovation project and followed the client’s brief to revitalise the exterior of the detached property and maximise their usable living space.
The property exterior was uplifted with the replacement of the existing timber boarding with untreated Red Cedar cladding and the addition of beautiful brickwork rendered over existing brickwork, in a smooth white render for a crisp finish and look.
Over time, the new timber cladding exposed to the natural elements will give the building a modern contrast of colour and material.
To provide additional space, JLArchitecture enlarged the existing garage and created an office above with a rear dormer. An attractive, functional extension at the rear of the property was cleverly designed by JLArchitecture, providing a renovated kitchen and lounge space where the family can enjoy their meals.
Key to unlocking outdoor space and light within the property was the installation of a modern roof terrace, where the family can relax and enjoy the outdoors.
A detailed planning application was submitted to Brentwood Council for the proposed alterations and was granted approval at the first attempt, allowing the Designer to deliver the project within the client’s desired completion time.
