Cedar clad double-storey rear extension in Mile End

When the Mitchinson's bought their Victorian terraced house in East London, they knew they had a big project on their hands.

Though they loved its antiquated style, the couple recognised straightaway that their home was crying out for a revamp. 

Enter Architect Your Home – in a collaborative process, we helped make the Mitchinson's’ dreams become a reality. Their new extension covers two floors across the rear of the property and has provided the couple with a state-of-the-art new kitchen, a stunning bathroom and an essential spare bedroom.

Customer Story

At the beginning of their project, the Mitchinsons’ rear half of the house was in poor condition; to make the most of their home’s potential, the couple were looking to design and build something completely fresh and contemporary. 

As keen chefs, it was essential the Mitchinson's could incorporate a functional and chic-looking kitchen space into the downstairs area of their home. With an additional love for entertaining, an additional bedroom and bathroom were at the top of the couple’s list of needs, all with a hint of flair in the design. 

With their design inspiration in hand, the Mitchinson's’ first step towards building their dream home was securing planning approval from their local authority; however, their initial planning application and subsequent appeal were rejected. 

Realising that they needed some additional help, the couple enlisted Architect Your Home, who drew up some comprehensive plans, gathered together the most important information and made sure their application was approved after 15 months of rejections.

Green light is given and ready to go, the couple’s design ticked all the boxes in their brief. The Mitchinson's preferred minimalist style and it was Architect Your Home who introduced them to the idea of utilising unusual materials to achieve a neutral, stylish look. Approval in hand, the Mitchinson's were finally able to search for the right builders and begin their home project. 



“We are so glad we teamed up with Architect Your Home; their design had far greater architectural value than what we originally proposed, and their vision and attention to detail gave the extension much more character than we would have been able to alone.”
