The challenge

A clients needed a new space that would compliment its heritage

Extending a Grade II listed property requires an awful lot of careful and considered design to ensure that the alterations are suitable for the property and don't detract from the original historic building. This project highlights how we are able to work with local authority conservation officers to come up with design solutions that are both complimentary to the original building as well as providing a beautiful additional space. Some of this project's main features are locally sourced stonework, large exposed timber trusses and of course, the fantastic glazed gable helping to bring the outside in. This extension was the perfect solution to provide our clients with an incredible open plan space that allowed the original farmhouse to sing.

Having already used three other architects and got nowhere New Space Architecture were a breath of fresh air! I finally found someone who was able to listen to my brief, challenge my misconceptions and deliver exactly what I wanted. I am so impressed.
