A sensitive extension and alteration of a Grade II listed property to create a contemporary Kitchen/Dining space that frames and highlights stunning views out across the valley.

Lime-washed brickwork has been carefully detailed to act as the subtle go-between the roughcast render of the main house and the historic redbrick boundary walls. The projecting reveals of the original Georgian façade are also highighted within the brick profile and detailing. Whilst working at ADW, we worked tirelessly to ensure that the proposal, not only complimented the existing character, but also highlighted its own unique beauty as a well crafted and wonderful addition to an already wonderful home.
