Celebrate your Garden, bring the outdoors in.
An orangery kitchen extension is a great way to create a connection to your garden. Routed in the english country house tradition, like the modern kitchen conservatory extension, with more modern detail such as structural glass, and contemporary glazing, this addition to your home and kitchen can bring the outdoors in.

What should I look for in an extension architect firm?
We recommend finding an extension architect firm local enough to know your area and local planning department and with a proven track record of delivering similar projects.
If you are not in our geographical area try searching online for a local extension architect or extension architect near me.
How long will my extension architect need to produce design plans?
From meeting your kitchen extension architect to submitted plans, we recommend allowing 2 to 4 weeks.
How much should I budget to build an extension?
A baseline entry level extension will be £1.5k to £2k per sqm, though more often £3k per sqm in London.
Why hire an architect?
While it is possible to proceed without a kitchen extension architect, an architect will help deliver value, potentially saving money through assisting getting your project to site quickly and efficiently, getting better design a better result for your budget.
I’m thinking of hiring a loft extension architect, at what point in my project should I involve an architect?
From the start. Your architect will guide you through the process, creating a project program to help establish costs and timescales.
How far can I extend without planning permission?
Permitted development rights allow for 3m extensions for terraced housing and 4m for detached without planning permission. Getting a lawful development certificate is always recommended.
Depending on whether your property is listed or in a conservation area, this can increase up to 6m rear extension for a terrace and 8m rear extension for detached properties.
With permitted development, for a rear extension architect advice should be sought as it has to comply with other design criteria.
I live in a conservation area, how far out can a permitted development side extension go?
Zero! Side extensions are not allowed permitted development within conservation areas.
A planning application is required,, so for a side extension architect or planning advice is advisable.
We have a great track record for development with conservation areas.
