How important is the privacy of your garden?

With the weather being as wonderful as it has been in the UK recently, there’s no doubt many of you will have been out enjoying soaking up the rays in the garden. However, have you ever thought about how much you value the privacy of your garden space?

The truth is, we all know that having neighbours that can see over your fence, or having properties nearby that overlook your garden can be a bit of an obstacle to being able to truly unwind and relax.

It is important to make these considerations during the initial stages of designing or even when it comes to extending a home.

Unfortunately, not all architects will take the time and effort to consider just how their design choices will affect the privacy of each home’s garden area, despite the fact that most homeowners agree that it is important.

Fortunately, here at Fibre we pride ourselves on not being the same as most other architects as we have a strong commitment to what we like to call ‘considerate design’.

By this we mean design that is not just high quality but also thinks about the practicalities of the people who are going to live in the homes we help create.

We go the extra mile to ensure that conscious decisions are made not only with respect to the garden but also the size of each room and the layout of the home to make each home we design a series of spaces that will be a pleasure to live in day in, day out.

Making sure the garden is a truly private and relaxing space is just one of the ways we make considerate design choices when designing homes or groups of houses, and rather than just looking to maximise number of houses on a plot we believe good considerate design can add additional value too, sometimes more so than mere numbers.

Over our many collective years’ experience, we have developed a unique approach to home design that goes above and beyond each client’s brief to develop something really special that can be truly enjoyed.

So, you’ve decided you need to change your living arrangements. Either you need more space, or you just feel that your current home is tired and has lost that ‘spark’ that made you fall in love with it in the first place. This is something that adding a ‘lick of paint’ won’t solve, so where do you go from here?

The first thing you might do is look into relocating. This could be an opportunity for a new start somewhere that is entirely different. However, after doing some research you’ve decided that the cost and the disruption that’s involved is too much, and you may actually like the location of your house, and some of the features it already has.

So, what’s next? You’ve heard of people having home extensions built, but you’re worried that sometimes they can look like an ill-thought through add-on. What you need is an architect that really understands the importance of delivering exquisite, high-quality home design to help make an extension and remodelling the right choice for you.

Luckily, here at Fibre Architects we are experts in designing extensions that feel like they have always been a natural part of your home, and creating spaces that you won’t know how you lived without. Working together with you, the client, and talking extensively about your priorities and preferences in your updated home, we create designs that turns mere ideas into reality, and add value to your home at the same time.

So, what about design? We know people are different and as the home is a very personal thing, everyone will want something slightly different from their home extension project. For example, in the past we have built both ‘statement’ extensions (as shown in the photograph above) that modernise and contrast the existing property or ones that acts as a seamless addition to the home (see some examples below). Whatever it is you’re looking for, we can help.

Building a home extension is a great opportunity to introduce not only space, but floods of natural light that just weren’t available to you before. By designing the right extension, we can transform your home in a way you didn’t think possible before. So, it turns out your dream home might not actually be on that property website, or in that Estate Agent’s office after all – with a little bit of help, it may have been right under your nose the whole time!

Getting the process of redesigning your home started isn’t always easy. It’s often accompanied by the question – “where do I begin?”. Here at Fibre, we can make achieving the home you want an easier and genuinely more enjoyable and exciting process.
