Project – House 408
Location – Hiltingbury, Chandlers Ford
Scope of Works – Renovation + Extension
Located on a quiet road within a local character area, our clients were keen that their new extension should sit comfortably within the street scene whilst still maintaining an architectural language more suited to their contemporary style.
With the two storey side extension replicating the detailing and materiality of the existing house, a more playful language has been adopted to the rear through the addition of a striking timber-clad extension with dual pitched roof. The previous poorly integrated ‘bolt on’ extensions have been removed and the floor plans rationalised, creating a bright and welcoming kitchen and family room more suited to modern living. A fitted window seat gives a more intimate feel to the space, framing views of the garden beyond, with exposed plywood rafters and feature lighting adding texture and warmth.
