The renovation of a 1930s house in Winchester

This 1930s house in Winchester has been renovated adding a
lazed living, kitchen and dining space. Together with its extensive rear garden it has been transformed into a modern family home.

The client’s brief was to extend and remodel the house at ground and first floor to provide a light-filled kitchen-dining space connected to a vibrant family room that opens out to maximize the potential of the large garden.

The design seeks to reconcile the individual elements of the house by creating a singular elegant form. At first floor a new bedroom with an ensuite has been created.

Other additions include the insertion of oak timber trusses and an oak-sliding wall, which links the kitchen-dining space with a day room.

The works are complimented by a landscaped garden comprising swimming pool, pergola, timber decking and feature planting.

The architect specified a simple palette of materials including oak, limestone and off-white painted steelwork to give warmth and intimacy to the spaces. The use of stone and timber is continued externally to mediate between inside and outside.

The glazed extension uses structural glass supported from L-shaped steel box sections and incorporates large rooflights to bring light deep into the interior.
