The reordering and extension of the rear portion of a classic Edwardian cottage, providing a substantial open-plan kitchen with a new study, two additional bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom.
The proposals involve the complete rebuilding of the rear elevation of the property which had been extended in a piecemeal fashion from its original form as a two-up, two-down cottage at the turn of the century. Additional accomodation is provided at the first floor either side of an existing extension which is re-roofed and rendered to make it apear harmonious with the original house and adjacent properties. The kitchen is opened up and extended towards the garden with a contemporary single story structure with large opening areas of glass and a sedum roof. Natural stone and timber soften the edges of the new element and complement the materials of the original house.
