A glazed pavilion extending an Arts and Crafts house in Cambridgeshire

Storey’s Way is a Grade II listed house by Baillie Scott, built around 1929. Hudson Architects replaced an unsympathetic 1980s extension with a new contemporary glazed pavilion, creating a light-filled room and additional living space. The extension is minimal in form and the materials used - glass, brick and steel - were chosen in accordance with English Heritage guidelines that additions to period buildings should distinguish modern interventions from the original structure.

The new pavilion stands alone from the original house and is fully glazed to ensure visibility of the main building. It is accessed via a glazed connection which dovetails into the frame of the original loggia, thus restoring the original threshold of inside and out. A glass bridge further emphasises that the pavilion is distinct from the main house.
