Extension for a Listed Property in Berkshire
After acquiring a planning permission for the 150 m2 extension to a listed farm house property situated in Lambourn, Berkshire, we looked to engage traditional building methods to complement the existing historic character of the building.
A new timber frame structure helped in delivering a dramatic interior and natural stone walls allowed for the extension to seamlessly blend with the existing structure and add a visual impact to the exterior.
PROJECT LOCATION: LAMBOURN, BERKSHIRE
DURATION: 7 MONTHS
MMKM ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS
The newly built internal areas created a large central hall space with steel french doors opening onto the garden. New contemporary roof glazing, set within the exposed timber frame, ensured the development was clearly identifiable as a new addition.
The new bedroom accommodation, and accompanying ensuite bathrooms, added hidden play areas for the homeowners’ children, up at high level in the eaves, accessible only by a quirky sliding library-style ladder.
The entire development looked to embrace patina and textured materials- from exposed plasterwork in the new boot room, to refurbished reclaimed internal doors, shutters and window sills.
