About the project
As a second phase development to the The Knoll project, we were commissioned to convert an out building that historically had been the centre for the local scouts and cubs. The out building is to be converted to provide ancillary accommodation to the main house for guests and family to stay on an occasional basis.
To create the spaces required, two of the existing trusses have been strengthened to allow the bottom ties to be removed to create head height to a raised level bedroom which has the integral garage located below. The remainder of the accommodation is full height to expose the timber trusses and create volume. Reflecting the location existing trusses, the external wall has been opened up and large panels of oak framed glass inserted to bring light into and views out of the interior. By carefully considering design choices, this project is being done under Permitted Development Rights which means the Client could start the refurbishment straight away.
