WELCOME TO 2016 –THE YEAR EXTENSIONS GO BIGGER, BRIGHTER AND SMARTER!

 

 

GET CLEVER WITH YOUR EXTENSIONS

 

In 2015 The Foster and Co Group raised the standards of our Construction projects. The Extensions that were produced were not just an addition of space, they were feats of design that accentuated the original building whilst creating an entirely new living space. We found that our clients were looking to move in to modern living which not only included open plan spaces but also clever storage and smart technology. People are really thinking about how to use their homes and how they will grow in to them over the years. It seems to be a common consensus that whilst in previous years, families would move on to bigger properties to sustain their ever expanding families, home owners now realise that with the housing market still barely grasping at its prior success, Renovation is the better and sometimes, the only option.

That being said, it seems that when faced with limited options, rather than make do, Property owners are using the opportunity to explore what is really possible in designing their new home. Why build just an extra room when you could create something amazing with imaginative glazing, inventive use of levels and space and stunning features like contemporary staircase, slick kitchens and impressive angels.

An article that shows the true modern age of design and construction was featured in the Daily Mail on 10th December and discusses the awards for you the 2015 Don’t Move, Improve! Awards. The projects featured are similar to our own gallery and show how to really utilize your property and in particular the constrictive space that many London home owners have to work with.

Home Extension North London N16

We recently went to work on opening up the rear of a North London property based in the N16 postcode. Here, we were tasked to extend the rear of the property, open up the kitchen and the lounge area and light was top of the agenda. By installing 3 velux window skylights in to the home we were able bring the light through the sloping roof and adding the large aluminium patio doors and small window over the kitchen area really transformed this home. Feel free to have a look at the gallery below of the finished article.
