A stunning project revisited after a highly successful architect and client owner collaboration which has created an exceptional house in the conservation area of Old Town Stratford upon Avon. The house has been extended outwards, downwards and upwards to maximise the space utilizing basement (gym) and attic (ensuite bedroom) with a ground floor rear extension and creatively adaptive first floor with two further bedrooms and a study with roof extension above.
The exterior facing west rear façade is clad in zinc, render, aluminum and glass, facing onto a contemporary garden and summer house. Inside the spacious interior is full of features of old and new with cantilevered stairs and a rear kitchen, dining and sitting room extension with automated rooflights and great lighting.
The client’s choice of furnishings art and interior design complement the architecture and spatial design making this project truly amazing.
Le Projet est Terminé!
Le projet est complete for this new house adjacent to an historic village in Gascony France. Following a supervision visit MRT architects have carried out finishing building maintenance including render wall repairs, lighting and landscaping.
Le Grand Verger is a summer family home designed by MRT architects as a harmonious composition of barns and stone structures inspired by the local vernacular of the region. An oak framed structure creates an opportunity for a spacious interior design with an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting experience for up to twelve guests to stay. The accommodation ascends three levels as it steps up the hill nestling the pool in a natural south facing enclosure. At first floor a mezzanine creates a leisure room below the rafters and purlins. A balcony overlooks an apple orchard and vineyard and the ancient 12th century castle.

Grade II Listed Cottage meets Contemporary Extension
In 2017 we met with the owner of a Grade II Listed cottage in the Anglo-Saxon village of Wormington. The brief was flexible but an extension and rationalisation of a dodgy boundary by agreement with a good neighbour was talked about.
There was a shard woodshed half on and half off the natural dividing line on this pair of early 18th Century ranges which provided the opportunity to extend the house.
An application to extend the cottage with a contemporary addition was approved by enlightened Council Conservation Officers who supported a modern but sensitive replacement of the sheds! with a single storey glazed structure with floating roof.
There was an excellent collaboration with intuitive and supporting client which created lots of exciting changes to the interior culmination with the new kitchen and dining room which projects into the beautiful garden.
There are two new bath/shower rooms a new front door and hallway with sliding glass screens and alterations and improvements to create a perfect home full of personal effects and full of the clients’ personality. A wonderful synergy of architect builder and owner coming together over a four year project to reach a great and very satisfying achievement.
