To design a two storey extension and create an additional new bedroom, library, bathroom and entrance, on a small restricted site. The design has resulted in a family home of excellent proportion and living space, transforming the original cottage. As is typical of the area, the property boundaries are close together with a large change in levels, and the design maximised space whilst maintaining the size of the rear garden. Through utilizing locally sourced natural stone and mortar, stone tiles for the roof, timber frame windows and doors and careful detailing of gutters we ensured a seamless extension to the existing building.
We ensured that the design was sympathetic to the surrounding buildings by using Conservation roof windows and locally sourced natural stone, to maintain this local feature. It was important that some of the original structure was exposed as part of the interior design to maintain the connection to the original building. The new extension has blended well into the street scene achieving the Client’s ambitions for the project
