Refurbishment and extension of a Victorian detached house within the Winchester Conservation area. New first floor double bedroom and ground floor extension with garden relationship

The refurbishment and extension of a Victorian semi-detached property comprises a new ground floor kitchen / diner extension, landscape works, and an additional first floor double bedroom.

The site is within the Winchester Conservation Area and any new works were required to sensitively complement the existing house, whilst achieving the subtly contemporary space & strong relationship to the garden required by the client.

The proposal was subject to a lengthy planning process including Local Design review, with the proposal being granted at Appeal. The proposal plays with volumes and openings, light and views to create a dynamic relationship between internal spaces, sky and garden.

The simplicity of the extensions form, materials and detailing discretely integrate it with the existing context. The result is a fine example of architectural relationalism - a contemporary contextualism derived from a sophisticated recognition of the site.
