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.

Cotswold Cottage revisited

A perfect afternoon and an opportunity to pop in and visit this beautiful cottage after its extension and alterations some years later. The project sought to extend the accommodation on the ground floor and carve out a bedroom and shower room with stairway within the attic space. Walls were removed to create larger rooms and a flow which focus on the lovely garden views and onto the village and church steeple. The interiors are light and colourful and provide a timeless feel.

Steel frame Structure in Upton Upon Severn

The design was inspired by the river Severn warehouses and will be clad in a brickwork. Its facades captures the historic environment of the old town delivering a heritage exterior that is complete with a contemporary supermarket and gym interior.

 

Transformation Thursday – Hampton Lucy

We love a good transformation photo! This property which is nearing completion in Hampton Lucy previously lacked character and street presence. The entrance was originally via the side elevation which offered an awkward internal arrangement. By opening up the front elevation the owners can now enjoy a grand entrance hall with a beautiful gabled window at first floor offering stunning views over Hampton Lucy. Careful discussions were made with the planners in regards to the cladding material, the client wanted a sustainable environmentally friendly material which required less maintence than traditional timber cladding yet offered the same beautiful asthetics, we are very pleased with the finish of this Dura Composite Cladding. Construction works undertaken by Steelhead Developments. Swipe to see the Elevation before this exciting redesign.

Project nearing completion in the Cotswolds

The sun was shining on our site visit earlier this week to this beautiful new dwelling which is nearing completion in the Cotswolds. We are very excited for our clients to move into their new home which has been built to a very high standard by Houghton Construction Ltd.

We absolutely love how this project has turned out from the Cotswold stone wall in the entrance hall to the attention to detail on the curved stone steps which lead down into the sitting room. Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for the final reveal on this beautiful new property in the Cotswolds.
