“Bungalow Project” Chorlton

April 29, 2024

Title: Transforming Spaces: A Family Bungalow Renovation

At Pride Road Architects, we believe in more than just designing buildings; we strive to transform spaces into places that resonate with the essence of those who inhabit them. Today, we’re thrilled to share the journey of Sylvia and her family as we worked together to breathe new life into their family bungalow, nestled in the heart of Chorlton.

Unlocking Potential Through Collaboration

Sylvia’s story began with a vision for a home that could accommodate her family’s unique needs. Living in a cramped bungalow with her elderly father and daughter, Sylvia faced the challenge of accessibility following a road traffic accident. Determined to maintain her independence while providing a comfortable environment.


Enter Pride Road Architects, a franchise of talented female architects dedicated to turning dreams into reality. Led by Lisa Raynes, our team embarked on a collaborative journey with Sylvia, understanding her aspirations and crafting a tailored design that would seamlessly integrate functionality with aesthetics.

Expanding Horizons: From Compact to Spacious

The transformation began with reimagining the bungalow’s layout to maximise space and natural light. Through meticulous planning and thoughtful design, we extended the rear and side of the property, creating an expansive mixed-use area that seamlessly connected the indoors with the outdoors. Bi-fold and French doors invited the warmth of sunlight into the newly formed family room, dining area, and kitchen, while providing easy access to the serene slate garden paving.

Innovative Solutions for Enhanced Living

But our vision didn’t stop there. Recognising Sylvia’s need for accessibility and comfort, we incorporated a suite on the ground floor, complete with an en-suite wet room, toilet, and utility room. Wide doorways and under-floor heating added to the convenience, ensuring a space that catered to every need.

On the upper floor, we introduced large windows and strategically placed roof lights to flood the rooms with natural light, creating an airy and welcoming atmosphere. A central lift provided accessibility to the extended bedrooms and a spacious bathroom, while a walk-in dressing room and a stunning balcony became the focal points of luxury and relaxation.


A Dream Realised: The Joy of Everyday Holiday Living

For Sylvia and her family, the completion of the renovation marked the beginning of a new chapter filled with joy and serenity. With ample space to move freely, they found themselves immersed in a perpetual holiday retreat within the comfort of their own home.

As Sylvia eloquently puts it, “The refurbishment has really lifted our spirits, and we are extremely happy to be moved in.” From cramped quarters to a spacious haven, the transformation speaks volumes about the power of collaboration, innovation, and a shared vision for a better tomorrow.


In Conclusion

At Pride Road Architects, every project is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our clients. Through collaboration, creativity, and a commitment to excellence, we turn dreams into reality, one space at a time. Join us on the journey to redefine what it means to call a house a home.
