Phillips Tracey Architects has secured planning permission to extend and refurbish a terraced building in Surrey
The Richmond practice saw its plans for 35 Bridge Road in East Molesey approved by Elmbridge borough Council.
Its scheme will involve building a split-level extension to the side and rear of the property. This will increase available retail space as well as transforming a one-level flat into a two-bedroom mews house.
The addition to the building will be separated from the existing structure using a retained outrigger and the single-storey roof over an existing extension.
‘External walls are to be constructed with yellow London stocks in a Flemish bond and flush lime pointing to match the existing building,’ said the practice.
‘Soldier course detailing is proposed at the parapet and as a band defining the first floor. A low green roof to the main extension provides an unobtrusive and natural surface when viewed from above, providing an improved outlook for a number of nearby residential properties.
‘Timber-framed windows will be carefully placed and/or deeply set back to avoid overlooking and to provide adequate daylight.’
Planning chiefs ruled the scheme was in line with the local development plan.
