Extension at Austen Road

Our clients wanted a house that blended the solidity and character of an old house with the energy performance and comfort of a new development.

The house presents a serene and austere façade to the street with a sharp, contemporary extension to the rear, engaging with the garden and flooding the deep ground floor plan with light. The relocated kitchen - now in the centre of the plan - is linked to the new family living space to the rear to create a warm and lively 'hub'.

Every room boasts super-insulated external walls and high-performance double-glazed windows to keep running costs low. Stylish new fittings make no concessions to modern living and accentuate the traditional features and proportions of the house.
