The objectives of the client brief was for additional space, a better quality of light and the re organisation of the outdoor space whilst making minimal intervention in the existing 19th century structure.

Responding to the brief for additional space, the house was enlarged by the partial removal of an existing return and a new single storey extension to the rear of the main house forming a modern counterpoint to the existing dwelling.

The new brickwork addition provides an open plan kitchen, dining & living area with a direct relationship to the rear garden whilst also relating to the existing principle rooms with a 3.3 metre floor to ceiling height and the location of the kitchen concealed behind full height doors allows for a direct sightline and view from the main entrance of the house through the new addition to the garden.

This new intervention, designed to provide for the maximum amount of light in the new and existing internal spaces is connected to the main reception rooms by cantilevered stone steps and is rooflit at the junction of the new and old. The brickwork, in keeping with the existing material of the original ground floor return and of the adjoining houses, is used both externally & internally for the roof covering, walls, floors and ceiling with the brickwork floor continued flush externally to meet with the new lawn, paved areas, terraces, flowerbeds, carport and boundary treatments.
