Cropwell Bishop

About the project

The owners of this beautiful Victorian house wanted to reconfigure the internal kitchen space and create a modern and contemporary extension for the family to enjoy.

The key design requirement was to connect the house with their enclosed garden in as light and transparent a manner as possible. So with some early input from a structural engineer, I designed a glass-walled extension with only one small section of wall to hang the TV on.

An extended roof overhang is located over the south facing glass patio door elevation to provide solar shading to the interior on the hot summer days we occasionally get. The metal trimmed roof is also extended over the existing rear door to provide a porch area and to tie the extension back to the original house.

Low energy down lighters are located in the roof overhang to the 3 sides of the extension so that the building sparkles even on our long winter evenings.

Key Features

– Contemporary extension to a traditional house

– Glass walled design

– Extended roof canopy overhang

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
