      Single and Two Storey Extension with Feature Glazing

The building was originally a farm house with an attached pig shed to the rear, that was subsequently converted into habitable space by previous owners. Since this had been done many years ago, to much less stringent regulations, the space was dark, dingy and poorly insulated. The client's brief was to demolish this and construct a modern living area with a mezzanine that could open out on to the garden.


The site was located in a sensitive area and had some historical importance to the local history. This led to the need for a watching archaeological brief during excavation. A sensitive approach to the design was required, blending new and old buildings. The extension comprises a two storey element, stepping down to a single storey element. At the far end a steel frame was used to create a completely glazing gable with views out onto the garden. Further daylight was admitted with the use of several rooflights. The two storey element houses a utility, boot room with study mezzanine above. The mezzanine was opened up to the living area by glazing balustrading and open tread staircase dressed in oak.
