The core rooms of this 19th Century period house are well proportioned but unfortunately more recent extensions to the side & rear weren’t maximising its overall potential. The home was therefore stripped back to its historic core and then partially reconfigured, extended and fully refurbished.
Situated within a Conservation Area, the plot is one side of a mirrored pair that together form a fairly long, grand and largely symmetrical frontage. Therefore, one of the key challenges was to add a two storey side extension to one end without upsetting the symmetry & balance of the original facade.
A two-storey recessed extension with a front to back double height glazed link was proposed to creating a clear distinction between the original house and the new space. The new living spaces at ground floor create a large but zoned open-plan space, maximising natural light and connection with a mature garden on all three sides of the plot.See more
