Architects in Clapham SW4
Anthony Thomas Architects have worked in South West London, most notably in and around Clapham SW12, for over 20 years.
In this time, we have seen an astonishing transformation of the area; inexorable gentrification and development of ‘run down’ areas which gave the area a shady reputation in the early 90’s.
The houses, now occupied by young families and professionals have too undergone significant changes with extensions and re-modelling having altered Clapham properties’ topography. Working around Clapham Common, the Old Town, Abbeville Village, Shaftesbury Estate, Diamond Conservation Area and the Hyde Park Estate we have transformed dozens of ‘ordinary’ terraced houses into magnificent family homes.
Loft conversions & kitchen extensions in Clapham SW4
Our clients in Clapham usually approach Anthony Thomas Architects with view to create extra space for their growing families. Most common are Victorian terraced houses needing loft conversions and kitchen extensions with the occasional basement conversion (these are harder to have planning permission agreed). Because we are a small architecture practice we don’t take on more than two projects at any one time. This gives us the time and flexibility to really get to know our clients and interpret their vision exactly (with a few of our own ideas thrown in, of course!).
Many of our Clapham clients ask us whether they should sell and move to more ‘up and coming’ areas such as Balham and Tooting, where there is still value to be added. It’s amazing how simple design and creating or reconfiguring existing space can totally transform a property. On average, we add £200k + to the value the home so we definitely recommend to stay put… if the shoe fits.
