2023 is shaping up to be a busy year in the studio, with a number of exciting projects coming to fruition. In this week’s blog we take a snapshot of some of our current projects, all of which have received planning permission and have works starting to take place – this is always a wonderful part of the process and provides us with a huge sense of satisfaction as we see our designs come to life.
Alterations and Extensions to a Cotswold Stone Home, Oxfordshire
We have designed this beautiful two-storey Cotswold stone rear extension with a double gable roof, a one-and-a-half-storey side extension and an additional larch timber-clad single-storey side extension for this stunning detached home in the Cotswolds. The works also included the design of a new replacement Cotswold stone garage with timber frame stable garage doors and a workshop on the first floor with roof lights, relocation of the driveway entrance and extensive landscaping to the surrounding gardens.
The project involves extensive demolition of the existing extensions and replacement of a mono-pitched roof with a flat roof to allow for additional windows on the first floor, which will flood interior spaces with natural light whilst also allowing for beautiful views of the surrounding gardens and countryside. The use of Cotswold stone provides a traditional aesthetic which gives a stylish contrast against the timber larch cladding which will weather naturally silver.
Extensions and Alterations to a Detached Cotswold Stone Home
We have designed this two-storey rear extension to provide additional space for modern family living. The mixture of timber cladding to weather naturally silver, Cotswold cream render, contemporary aluminium and oak frames create a softening contrast with the stone of the existing house. The double set of French doors on the ground floor floods the interior spaces with natural light whilst affording lovely views of the surrounding gardens with the first-floor windows giving extensive views across the surrounding countryside.
