About the project
Purchased as a final home for retirement, my Clients wanted to modernise this dormer bungalow to provide a home that was functional, aspirational and low maintenance.
The warmth of sunlight and natural lighting to the interior were important factors so the internal room locations where carefully considered and an angled rear extension designed to capture the late evening sun. A simple pallet of through-colour render, untreated timber cladding which will naturally silver, and large areas of glass will help to achieve their requirements. A new entrance to the front of the house with reshaped windows and cladding creates a far more contemporary home, providing a more welcoming approach home and far more presence on the street.
