Single storey extension to 17th Century Cottage. The existing cottage had a dark poorly lit interior, particularly the former kitchen/dining room, which was also quite small with a limited dining area. The brief was to provide a dining room, open to the kitchen area with separate utility & shower/wc rooms & rear entrance door linked to a cover area. The improvement of light levels into the existing kitchen area was also a high priority. The elevation onto which the extension has been built faces NE, over-looking an extensive mature garden.

The extended dining space was to provide an open view of the garden. The rear elevation of the existing building was restrictive due to the positioning of windows, which constrained the proposed design options. SRM provided Architectural Design services for a self build project by Derek Mason, from survey of existing, sketch designs, planning consent building regulations, detailed design & partial involvement during construction phase of works.
