Our clients had recently purchased a large detached property with an annexe building at the rear of their garden. They wanted to make this little building work for them and help fund extensions and improvements to their new home. The annexe was formerly a golf house ancillary to a golf course which had long since been developed as a housing estate. The main house itself is a well-proportioned arts and crafts home with original features of the period, but lacking in modern facilities to service large reception spaces. Our design for both buildings seeks to reference the materiality of the principle house, with its red clay-tile roofing, but eschewing vertical mullioned glazing and instead utilizing large-format modern versions.
