Ockley, Surrey

Our client was looking for an ideal space for their elderly parent to live in. This would have everything they need on a day-to-day basis to ensure comfort and accessibility while being near to their loved ones.




The story: We knew that this annexe should be spacious and accessible for our client, as well as incorporate a welcoming, cosy modern look. This annexe would heavily focus on making our client feel comfortable and content with their surroundings, and not be challenged by inaccessibility.

Interior: We used our standard white plastered wall and ceiling, and our laminate flooring in white washed oak. The bathroom features unique patterned tiles and a stylish vanity unit, alongside a shower unit. The bathroom is connected to the bedroom, alongside a utility room with a boiler. We installed a standard kitchen with back-splashed tiles and integrated hobs, oven, extractor fan, microwave, fridge and sink. The lounge includes a skylight in the centre of the room, and bi-folding doors which create an indoor/outdoor living space to enjoy. We also built a reinforced wall to mount a TV in the living room.

Exterior: This annexe features a unique placement of cladding. Split into two, there is one side with stone cladding and the other with vertical Cedar. The main door and overhang feature horizontal Cedar to contrast with the vertical Cedar cladding. The mix of stone and timber cladding was inspired by our clients’ main house design. This annexe also includes three identical and symmetrical open/tilt windows for the bedroom, a large front entrance door and three-panel bi-folding doors. We also included composite decking to help even flatten the land for the annexe.

Finished Product: After the build was complete, it was wonderful to see how this annexe has turned into the perfect home for our client. To have given someone a home that is perfect for their needs while being close to their loved ones is forever rewarding. This annexe fits perfectly within our client’s garden and matches the style of their house wonderfully. It is always a pleasure to see how our creation has changed people’s way of living for the better.
