The challenge

Blending old with new

This project was such a joy to work on. Having already achieved planning and listed building consent our clients instructed us to produce their detailed technical drawings for building regulation approval. Having decided to do the project as a self-build it was vital to our clients that we were able to produce some extremely detailed drawings that would allow them to correctly construct this complex design. Fortunately that is just what we love to do and it was a real pleasure working with them to ensure a seamless build. And just look at the result... a seamless blend of traditional thatched listed cottage with a modern new extension. Beautiful.

We had such a fun time turning our listed cottage in to our forever time and the team at New Space Architecture were fantastic throughout. Their technical knowledge on the construction and building regulations was amazing and just having them at the end of the phone on wet and miserable mornings was such a relief and gave us the confidence to push on. We couldn't have done it without them!
