Rear extension & Basement Conversion in Brighton

Planning Permission has been granted for this very challenging rear basement construction and extension to a Georgian Cottage in a Conservation Area in Brighton & Hove, Sussex.

The shallow curved roof maximises the space within the extension while minimising the visual impact to the neighbours at the eaves and the pre-weathered zinc mimics lead thus blending in with the surrounding Georgian buildings.

Excavation of a new basement level will provide two bedrooms and an en-suite while the new ground floor will provide an open plan kitchen diner. Retaining the existing patio down to the basement level will allow light into all rooms and the ground floor will have a huge roof light over the internal stair well and kitchen.
