Copper framed glazed extension to a Grade II listed house within a conservation area

The extension had to integrate with the existing assembly of buildings: the original 1820s cottage, the 1850s main house and a barn constructed in 1900. 

The glass extension contains a kitchen and dining room within a narrow copper framework, which has extensive glazing to provide south-facing views.

Along with a full-height, double-glazed rear glass wall and sliding doors the extension has triangular skylights to direct light to key points, such as the dining table and kitchen work surfaces.

Between the new kitchen and existing living room a large, open light well was built to diffuse the light within both, create a south-facing window in the existing living room and provide continuous views through the house.
