Scope of project
- Conversion of existing sun room: Demolish existing sun room area to create a bright, warm and open living space.
Ensure listed building parameters are met: House is grade II listed therefor careful attention will be paid to ensure new extension matches existing and blends in with listed elements
- Timber and glass to be focus of new design. Traditional and simple timber framed porch to match scale of existing.
A simple material palette will be adopted, potentially consisting of locally found materials such as timber + slate to help merge the extension with the surrounding landscape. Extensive amounts of glazing will be incorporated into design to maximise light and views.
Achieving an extremely well insulated thermal envelope will reduce the need for heating.
Focus on sustainability is key throughout project. Ensuring minimal use of concrete and other non-renewable materials.
Natural materials will be utilised where possible to minimise environmental impact.
Careful attention will be paid to assessing construction methods due to limited access to garden.
