About the project
Located in a conservation area, it is important that new development does not harm the character of the area. Careful consideration was taken to create a modern ground floor extension and ancillary out-buildings which were either concealed from the public domain, or presented an appearance that was in-keeping with the area. It was also decided that to create more upper level bedroom space, the attic would be converted without the use of dormer windows which would affect the shape of the existing roof.
The South facing rear garden has been connected to the house via a very contemporary side extension which has large glazed patio doors. This area will form the heart of the living accommodation with the lounge/dining/kitchen areas flowing from the existing house, into the extension, and out onto the patio and garden beyond. The front entrance has also been relocated to bring people into the centre of the house. This opens up the ground floor layout and allows the rather grand central staircase to be major focal point.
Ancillary accommodation is also created on the location of an existing garage to provide a home study and gymnasium area which face out onto the private rear garden.
