Fine, traditional architecture and the best of contemporary design come together at the core of this scheme to upgrade and extend this house. Without straying too far from the original style, a new single-storey extension employs traditional materials in vernacular brick and sandstone. By increasing the ground floor footprint, the internal layout has been simplified to create an open-plan living arrangement while the introduction of an internal courtyard invites natural light to flood through the space. Frameless doors, glazed roofing and a glass balustrade are a modern and complimentary addition in a home that is fit for the future while reminiscent of the past.
