We are now in the planning stage for a new build in Wimbledon. It is a contemporary design in a narrow, long plot within a conservation area; demanding a very detailed planning application including a model illustrating the scale of the proposal in relation to the large late Victorian and early Edwardian neighbouring buildings. The model will aid the planners in making a decision, providing an overarching view of the property and its surroundings.
We are currently in the construction phase of a basement and rear extension for a 3-story house in Knightsbridge, as well as a complete internal reconfiguration. Construction began two months ago and the excavation, and underpinning, of the extensive basement has been completed as has the above ground steel structure.
One of the most recently completed projects was Settrington Road SW6, which is now on the market. A Victorian family home extended over four floors with an outlook over South Park; the master bedroom’s sliding doors lead onto a private roof terrace which exploits uninterrupted views over the park. The bespoke kitchen and breakfast room’s sliding doors, leading out into a 21ft South West facing rear garden, capitalize on the outdoor space available; an integral element of the project.
Hogarth Architects were privileged to be offered the opportunity to take part in a charity football tournament, with all proceeds going to The Anthony Nolan Charity, a charity that works to save the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders.
The event was organised by Richard Davison, in support of his sister Rachel, and all the fantastic work the charity have done in helping her with her condition.
The tournament was a huge success, with great fun had by everyone involved. Each game was hard fought but fair, with the office team being crowned eventual winners after a thrilling 3-2 final win against Zero Zero.
As well as the football tournament, Richard and his brother in law will be running the 2016 London Marathon. If you would like to donate to this great course, please visit the Just Giving Page.
Hogarth Architects would like to congratulate Richard on a great tournament, and wish him all the best of luck in reaching his fundraising goal.

Works recently completed on a large Edwardian terrace in the leafy borough of Wandsworth. A rear and side extension and full basement alterations were undertaken to make the most of an unusually generous garden space. Internal redesign and reconfiguration to modernise and improve the internal space to maximise its use as a modern home.
Ian’s basement expertise was called on once again this month to discuss the hot topic that keeps getting hotter. Grand Designs visited Russell Gardens Mews this month to film for their future feature on the problems with building in an over-crowded, urban environment.
