Enlargement and Conversion to Contemporary Chalet

2 Bedroom Bungalow to 4 Bedroom Contemporary Chalet

Our investment builder client bought this typical detached 2-bedroom bungalow in close proximity to Mudeford seafront with a plan to enlarge and update the property completely.


Mudeford Before


Mudeford Proposed Front Elevation


After consultation with the clients, Studio Arkell envisioned a sleek, contemporary home with Scandi elements that reflects the coastal setting, increasing the footprint to the rear and into the roof to totally transform a tired bungalow into a substantial and beautifully proportioned family home.

The build is now complete and besides looking stunning, is a true reflection of the proposal from Studio Arkell.

As you approach the house the main entrance is now fronted with a wide parking apron, garaging a practical storm porch, (no getting wet looking for keys here) and discreet, elegant outside lighting.

The property is a light filled, welcoming space, with front to back line of sight that helps natural flow from the entrance to the family room, incorporating kitchen, dining and living directly onto the greenery of the landscaped gardens.

The generous, open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, offers an enormous wow factor, with an immediate connection to the outside entertaining spaces, through double, wide bi-fold doors that truly bring the outside in and make the garden an additional room.

The featured waterfall kitchen island is a sleek and clever addition connecting the working area of the kitchen and the social spaces of dining and living with a built-in breakfast bar seating area.


Kitchen with open doors to garden


This open plan room is full of beautiful and considered design, and has created a flexible, social space with zoned areas creating more intimate space within the whole.
