House extension Church Fenton, North Yorkshire.
We were appointed to design and gain local authority approvals for two additional bedrooms with an additional bathroom and transform the design of this early 1970’s bungalow into something more aesthetically pleasing in a style that would sympathetic to the character of this rural village.
The client’s initial thought was to place the additional accommodation in an extension to the rear. They accepted our advice that this would be a retrograde step. The extension would detract from a very nice garden, obscuring the open views from the existing rooms at the rear of the property and loosing an opportunity to improve the aesthetic appeal of the whole property.
It was agreed that the additional accommodation would be housed under a new steeper pitched highly insulated roof with dormer windows. New double glazed windows were installed into existing modified openings. The original poor quality brickwork was rendered using a modern high tech product and brick and limestone detailing traditional in the area completed the transformation.
