Project overview

The proposal involved the extension and remodelling of an existing house to improve the living accommodation and access to the garden spaces; the project also involved building a separate workshop within the garden and the integration of a new oak framed extension.  The existing house needed to make far better use of its lovely setting and the client brief was to improve that aspect along with a general increase in living accommodation.  HNA’s design allowed for the ‘opening-up’ of the ground floor layout creating an open plan space incorporating the kitchen, dining and informal living linked via an oak framed structure, along with access to the external spaces.  On the upper level, further alterations created improved bedroom and bathroom facilities.
