Ashby Road, Measham
This characterful cottage was in need of extra space in the form of a large kitchen, living area and an additional master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Our client requested that we design an extension to the rear that would accommodate such spaces. With removal of the existing glass porch, suitable space has become available to construct a double storey rear extension that maximises the views available from what will eventually be the enlarged first floor.
Our design includes vaulted ceilings with glazed roof sections within the rear facing bedroom and large sections of full height glazing within the kitchen. Careful attention to the use of materials was one of the priorities at design stage, as the additional section of the building is to compliment the characteristics of the cottage rather than detract from it.
Construction work is in progress on site, and are planned to complete near the end of 2015.
