LOCATION Tiverton outskirts
This was a challenging project to design an extension to a small thatched cottage on a restricted riverside site. The existing cottage was above the flood plane but the are available for the new extension was within the flood plain of the river very close to the river bank.
With extensive negotiation with the Local Authority and the Environment Agency this innovative scheme was developed that compliments the existing building while creating the additional space required and taking full advantage of the river views and the existing landscaped garden.
LOCATION Ducklington, Oxfordshire
BUDGET £85000- 90,000
This was a simple extension of a listed Cotswold Farm House to form an enlarged kitchen and family room. The brief was to design a sympathetic extension that would enhance the overall buildings and increase the accommodation.
One of the principal issues was the detail required for the existing chimney to be retained, the AGA to be located within the new room yet retain the use of the flue. In addition the, long range, views were to be exploited and the large opening screen allowed the room to be extended into the garden.
Natural materials and finishes were used throughout with efficient under floor heating and high levels of insulation incorporated into the new structure.
PROJECT Kitchen Extension
LOCATION Great Rissington, Gloucestershire
This was a substantial listed building set within its own grounds and linked to a walled garden. The brief was to maximise the existing site, views into and out of the walled garden while minimising the disturbance to the existing building.
By utilising the local stone and matching the existing roofing materials it was possible to sympathetically extend the accommodation to form a new kitchen, wine store, utility and family room.
