01. The Brief
Our clients needed an architect in South Brent, Devon to provide them with a Architectural Design Service for their Georgian house extension
02. Project Detail
We were approached to review the current internal accommodation and flow of a Georgian house, on the outskirts of South Brent. The impressive house was in need of a cosmetic overhaul and the 1960’s extension was both unsightly and poorly constructed.
We proposed to remove the existing extension and provide a new, contemporary extension in its place. This new structure would house the kitchen, utility and ‘day room’. The lightweight construction was designed to juxtapose the traditional architectural style of the main house and provide a different internal experience. The corner bi-fold windows open up fully to allow a better relationship with the garden. The butterfly roof creates a dynamic, sculptural form with hidden gutters and generous overhangs.
04. Client Testimonial
When we started, we weren’t even sure what it was we wanted and it wasn’t until about the ‘Mark VII’ version that we finally felt brave enough to give the go ahead. During this ‘design gestation’ we felt embarrassed at our lack of direction but our indecision was met with patience and guidance until the final layout was agreed…everything was handled with smooth professionalism including the planning process with Dartmoor National Park.
