Underhill Park Road

Architect: Russell Hunt Architects

This project involves the design and detailing of a new 2 storey light weight extension cut into the existing chalk hillside with internal and external modifications to an existing 1920’s house in Reigate. The architect designed extension provides access to the garden on two levels through an open plan kitchen dining room and upper level family garden room.The design requires new masonry retaining walls into the chalk hillside and complex supporting steelwork for the removal of internal and external load bearing walls. The design has been optimised for ease of construction due to difficult site constraints and limited access to the rear of the property via a narrow path to one side of the house and a change in levels of over 6.0 m from road side to garden level.
