CASE STUDY 1 – Rest home plans
Rest home plans to extend the existing premises to create a standalone disabled person facility with a separate entrance; to provide facilities for disabled clients and residents.
Client design brief for rest home plans
The rest home plans will provide a much needed disabled unit.
On the land adjacent to the existing building, design a two-storey extension to the existing rest home to form a disabled person unit. This will be a stand-alone unit with its own separate entrance; however, it will have internal access for staff and the existing rest home plans unit.
To create as many additional disabled, person size ensuite bedrooms as possible with the required ancillary rooms. This includes a lounge, dining area, bathroom as well as staff rooms and a reception area.
Within the allowable building site area, this unit will also have a remedial pool with gymnasium/exercise room and changing rooms with wash and shower facilities for the disabled.
Lift access to be provided between floor levels in the main new reception area.
These rest home plans have been approved for planning permission.
CASE STUDY 2 – Typical project to extend and remodel an existing two-storey detached house
Client design brief
Design an extension and remodel the existing three bedrooms house. This is to form an additional large ensuite master bedroom. Remodel other rooms to give more living space and if possible, form a study room and re-site the main entrance door to the front elevation.
Existing house layout
- The existing house is a modern cement render finished house which has a side main entrance door.
- The main lounge is an open vaulted area which has the height of the two stories.
- The access between the front and rear first floor bedrooms is via a gallery landing overlooking the lounge.
- There is a small ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom.
- The main bathroom on the first floor is small by today’s standards.
- There is an open plan kitchen/living area with a connected conservatory area.
Hence client request is (if possible)
- Increase the size of the lounge and living area and create a new living room.
- Create a new utility room and new study room.
- Re-site existing main entrance door to the front of house.
- Form a new additional master bedroom with ensuite facilities and enlarge one of the other bedrooms again with ensuite. Enlarge existing main bathroom.
Design solution requiring planning permission
Although the open vaulted lounge is quite majestic, it is slightly ‘over the top’ for this medium sized house. It also requires a lot of heating and isn’t ‘private’ when the children are in bed. Hence, this doesn’t allow for easy socialising when guests visit.
The proposal is to utilise the upper area of the lounge to form part of the new master bedroom. With the new two-storey extension to the left side of the building, this allows for this new bedroom and the existing front bedroom to be made ‘large’ and for both to have ensuite bathroom facilities.
The ground floor lower level of this extension forms a new living room with sliding door access to allow the existing lounge to be increased to this size, should the occasion be needed.
To re-site the existing main door to the front, the existing study will become the new hallway onto a new front door.
A further two-storey extension to the right of the existing building will house a new utility room adjacent to the existing kitchen. This will have its own access door to the rear and will allow shopping to be easily brought from the adjacent garage/car space, instead of through the front door.
In front of this utility room will be a new study room. At first floor level over these rooms will be the new large bathroom.
