This scheme was the refurbishment and extension of a 1960s bungalow.
The house was aesthetically and architecturally unremarkable and the Clients wished to upgrade both the interior & exterior of the building to create an attractive, airy home and to adapt the building to a more modern way of living. The brief was to refurbish it to create a home that flowed better internally, with an improved external appearance. The building was extended and remodelled to create a modern home, finished with traditional yet contemporary materials, such as green oak and zinc existing uPVC windows were replaced with aluminium.
The main extension was a new kitchen and dining wing, constructed with an oak structure, with a predominantly glazed gable-end to connect the space with the garden and fields beyond. Internally, the accommodation was reconfigured to make the most of the existing volume, and to provide a good flow of space and light through it. Externally, the house was remodelled to appear as one homogenous design with a contemporary look. The result is a charming, modern family home, finished in traditional materials, but detailed in a contemporary way.
Construction was completed in 2009.
