The clients’ brief was for the refurbishment of the existing detached but cramped 3-bedroom house, to create a more spacious property with a clear front door. However due to the site’s location and relevant planning policies there were green belt restrictions on the size of any possible extension.
Offset Architects cleverly designed the two-storey extension with a glazed link to clearly indicate the old from new whilst slightly angling the extension to maximise the lovely long-distance views. Using materials such as stone, brick and tile hanging in keeping with the outside of the existing property we created an attractive composition whilst creating a clean and refreshed interior by removing walls and increasing windows for a light and airy open plan feel.
Offset Architects were delighted this project was a finalist in the LABC Building Excellence Awards for Best Alteration or Extension to an Existing Home.
