Our client needed additional space to house their growing car collection and has taken the opportunity to provide additional ancillary space from which they can enjoy far-reaching reservior views.
We have a long history with this site having initially obtained approval for a 2 storey scheme following an appeal process. Since then the site has changed hands and we have been retained to develop a modern single storey scheme which will sit nicely on this leafy riverside plot.
We were asked to assist in the resolution of a regularisation issue in relation to landscaping works which had already commenced but also to develop a scheme that will rationalise the layout of this previously extended cottage and provides open plan space with a greater amount of light and connection to the garden.
Our client wished to increase the living area and to take advantage of the views on offer over the Ecclesbourne valley and we proposed to building over the existing double garage with a lightweight timber frame. The styling of the extension provides a timely 'facelift' to the existing bungalow.
We have updated our online portfolio with some recently completed projects. Two of these can be found in 'Extensions' and one in 'Restorations'.....Also we have added some current projects.
A fast flowing watercourse that runs past the house provided an interesting challenge to what was otherwise a fairly straightforward brief! Our response was a glass-enclosed ‘floating’ bridge over the watercourse to more functional utility and bathroom spaces. The extension reads as a garden pavilion, providing an impressive entrance courtyard and improved access to a peaceful, leafy garden beyond.
