As with a single storey extension once we have determined your size and layout all the other considerations will be considered. Any new room in your double storey extension will need to have light, ventilation and means of escape. When designing your extension, the planning limitations must be considered as the size and scale means it must be designed to fit with its environment and neighbouring surroundings.
The regulations are stricter specifically concerning fire escape and structure.
When we design your double storey extension online we advise that you must consider the overshadowing and loss of amenity/outlook form the neighbours of near the boundary.
When you know the size of the rooms you want, you need to know how to access and ventilate them the Architectural Designers and Architects at Online Drawing UK can advise on this. We always advise that you make the external of your new extension work well with your existing house. There are limitations in the planning guide for two storey extensions as they have more impact on their surroundings however, we like to work with and enhance existing areas where possible as this means less building work, cost, disruption and impact.
As a rule, clear glazing will generally not be permitted at first floor level within 7 meters of a boundary due to the risk of overlooking yet less consideration is needed on the ground floor and the use of glass can make your extension exceptional.
