This is a Grade II listed timber frame building that originates from the 16th century with later alterations and extensions.
Works involved the modernization of the kitchen and family room, the replacement of the existing dilapidated rear porch and the provision of a new entrance lobby and garden room.
Modern treatment of the structure, joinery and surfaces clearly differentiates between the new and existing elements whilst the restrained pallet of materials and colour ensures that strong connections are made between the two. The methods used to construct the new extension create a space which is much more open, light and airy than would have previously been possible. Carefully considered improvements to the existing rooms complement the design of the new extension and sit comfortably with the historic character of the building.
The scheme is a high quality 21st century addition that successfully incorporates a contemporary design into an historic building.
