This project involved the erection of a two storey cross wing attached to a bland gable end to the existing service wing attached at 90 degs against the main house stack of this Listed Grade II 16th Century range. The north (entrance) elevation has an expressed box frame in good condition. In contrast to the rather closed configuration of the existing house the extension was orientated to acknowledge a strong diagonal view across the lawn towards a distant Oak set in the field beyond. The extension corner was expressed as a 2 storey Oriel window in Oak with flanking buttresses to give definition and shadow and pick up the line of the adjacent brick garden walling. A radial set of yorkstone steps allowed the higher ground to set down elegantly to meet the glazed corner of the new wing and complete the architectural composition.
The existing house was 229.30sqm and the additional floor area amounted to over 40% increase. Subsequently a small single storey service wing was also added to our extension and internal alterations made by others.
