Substantial remodelling and extension of an existing bungalow to create a fantastic new family home drastically different in appearance to the original traditional property.
Set in the open countryside of the Tarrant Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a contemporary twist on the existing form improves the visual proportion of the dwelling whilst making the most fabulous panoramic views.
The complex appearance of the existing bungalow has been simplified. A single storey extension has been added to the front of the house on the western gable forming one of two ‘boxes’ at either end of the house, connected by a simple flat roof link.
The design features large full height glazing for a light and bright interior, while a large overhanging roof offers solar shading.
To the rear, a new double garage set at 90 degrees to the house, forms a more inviting and notable entrance to the property. Louvres connect the garage to the building and create interesting shadows on the crisp white render.
