The existing site housed a detatched 1960's two-bedroom bungalow.  The site steps dramatically to the North-West giving the property superb views.


The design harnesses the existing modern style and scale of the mid-century dwelling.  By enhancing the thermal performance of the existing building using external insulation, the external materials are contempory and subtle.


The Garage extension creates a courtyard which helps guide you towards the new recessed entrance in the centre of the dwelling.


A two storey extension to the North West links the house with the garden though a living dining space, solar gain though large glazing to the south elevation.

My clients wanted an extension to an old coach house in the conservation area of Wirksworth.


The brief was to create a link from the main house to the garden which is at the rear of the property and at first floor level. Acommodation for a studio, utility and shower room were also required.


An agricultural approach to the materials was adopted that was sympathetic to the original dwelling. Maximum light and solar gain was acheived through south facing glazing, the view into the stuning garden to the north through a panaramic slot window at the rear minimised heat loss.


The site was wedge shaped, and we maximised the internal space by building right up to the exisitng drystone wall to Bowling Green Lane.
