Complete rebuild of a detached house in Bromley

OBC have completed a rebuild of a detached house in Bromley

It may seem a strange thing to almost completely knock down an existing building and almost rebuild it from scratch but it may not be as odd as it sounds and may make more financial sense.

Although the finished building doesn’t look out of character with its surroundings the interior and extra space achieved made this development worth the effort for the customer.

Not only was the initial brief from the client to develop a striking new interior but they wanted to future proof it with amazing automated lighting and audiovisual systems.

Starting from the top down, a stunning new cinema room with integrated audio was fitted in the new roof space. A large flat-screen TV was integrated into the wall with no wires to be seen along with a specialised audio system, installed by audio and visual experts Home Philosophy.

OBC designed and built a new large bedroom with a classic walk-in ensuite with fitted wardrobes into the opposite side of the new roof space.

Moving down to the floor below, a master bedroom and 2 large bedrooms were designed and fitted. The master bedroom is fitted with dimmable ceiling strip lighting and a classic ensuite bathroom finished in dark wood and white. A walk-in wardrobe was designed with a skylight and fitted wardrobes to opposite sides of the room.

This extensive rebuild of a detached house from the 1940s is complemented with a nod to its past with the installation of Critall patio doors. A dark wood kitchen in bright south facing kitchen diner really brings out the grain in the dark wooden cabinets.

Finally, we come to the garden and the newly built garden room. The landscaped garden leads up to the garden room which has been fitted with underfloor heating and installed with its own kitchenette and bathroom.

All in all this project was the kind of work we love, in-depth and detailed with a high level of finish which the client was exceptionally pleased with.
