Description

Our design brief was to create a contemporary living space to compliment the existing Listed Building and its surroundings. The house is situated on the side of a hill elevated over a picturesque church and dales. The proposed extension takes full advantage of these views with its predominantly glazed exterior walls. 

The proposed extension accommodates a new kitchen and dining space and provides better access to the surrounding gardens. A glazed flat rooflight is situated on the junction of the original external wall and the new extension to provide a clear divide between the original building and the new. This created an exciting feature shining light onto the original exposed stone wall whilst providing light into what would have been a dark area at the back of the extension.

The existing house benefited from a full restoration with minor alterations to the layout to maximise the space available and the flow.
