The existing site housed a detached 1960’s two bedroom bungalow, which was in need of serious renovation. Our clients were young, looking to create an extensive and exciting family home. Sean Banton owned his own building firm, Greenhill Building Company Ltd., our paths had therefore crossed in the past and they were keen to work with us.
The site steps away dramatically to the North-West which is obscured from the viewer on arrival. This elevated position provides the property with superb views from the South West to North West.
The property was in a sorry state, but the plan was to retain the building, renovate and extend, rather that demolish. Ensuring the home was low energy was a top priority. Therefore we intended to externally insulate the existing bungalow gaining huge thermal mass at the core of the design.
