The design for this property is simple in form - a single store rear extension with a projection of 4.6 meters in line with the existing rear garage projection line into the garden.

The existing roof of the main property line has been changed from that of dutch gable to a standard gable roof, that has been applied to other properties along the street scene, allowing opportunity to create more space within the roof.

The 02 storey extension only impacts the overall massing at first floor (roof space) as the proposed ground level only replaced the existing car port. This has also been intentionally stepped back from the original line of the existing building line to create less impact on the street scene.

The new side extension has also been reduced from the overall footprint of the car port and garage that sit on an angle to the boundary to number 08. This also helps to relieve the mass that is currently sat on boundary between the proposal and number 08.

The overall massing is also in line to that of the existing property and the ridge line has been reduced and does not exceed that of the original, as can be seen on the existing and proposed elevations.

The infill extension to the rear also has a flat roof roof that helps to reduce the overall mass to property number 04.

Two new roof dormers are formed, with the larger of the two moving away from the existing junction that joins to number 04 space and respond to the views to the rear.

The overall impact of the new dormers are minimal as there are no houses to the rear of the property and are not be viewed from the existing properties on Deercroft as all the properties are more or less within the same building line.

There are two roof lights at the front of the property as it is critical to allow light into the design of the double height space, but at the same time allow the hallway to be comfortable and not overbearing from solar gain.
