The School House is a Grade II listed building situated in a Conservation Area, dating from the 19th Century. Our clients have an exciting aspiration to extend the former school house with a sympathetic and contemporary addition, to help augment the connection between the wonderful property and the magnificent garden.
Our proposals draw inspiration from the School House, utilising the colour and texture of the existing property, a minimal palette of materials, and a contrasting form, to ensure minimal impact on this historic listed building. Limestone recycled from demolished outbuildings will be used to create new wall panels, and charred timber cladding boards will provide a relationship to the existing black boarding on the house. The contemporary form and layout will provide our clients with a unique extension to an individual historical home of character and significant local importance.
