The existing property was to undergo sympathetic renovation and refurbishment with some internal remodeling. The two storey side extension is to be demolished and replaced with a two storey subservient contemporary/legible modern lightweight extension. Its juxtaposition will communicate within its context and add much needed living and bedroom accommodation, whilst preserving and enhancing the host dwelling.
Plus new single storey utility room to rear (replacement structure) in timber cladding and sloping flat roof.
Construction and refurbishment of an existing stone derelict house in the National Parks.
The empty dwelling house (of traditional construction) over two storeys was in need of some sympathetic renovation and refurbishment. It was extended in the early 1970’s to the gable end.
The brief was to create a replacement side extension (over two storeys). The side extension is to create a space for family dining and capture the views of Carningli Mountain with the clever use of fenestrations. The two storey element aimed to respect the views from the master bedroom (in main house) and the drama and height/light must be created in dining area.
The side extension is to be wider than the one it replaces and link cleverly to the host dwelling. Eco-architecture and beautiful materials were to be used, attention to detail and quality is paramount.
We worked closely with the clients inspired biref and Rob Scourfield (Conservation planner) and planners at PCNP to achieve a wonderful mix of old and new.
The stone elevations have been sandblasted and the mix of the juxtaposing extension and asymmetrical wing design works well in the setting - an exciting project that we cant wait to see complete.
