Extension to a cottage to provide a modern open plan living space and master suite

The extension to Poachers Cottage adds a modern space to a historic Cotswold cottage using a contemporary design.

The clients wished to have more open plan living accommodation with more natural light entering the property and an improved relationship between the property and the garden.

The form of the extension echoes the simple pitched roof form of the original property and uses traditional materials to help the extension sit within the conservation area. However by incorporating details such as a secret gutter and a metal clad projecting bay window the extension has a crisp and contemporary aesthetic.

A two-storey glazed link serves as an entrance to the property and connects the extension to the existing property. At ground floor a kitchen/dining area was created and a dining room formed within the original property. Being positioned either side of the glazed link both areas benefit from plenty of natural light.

The two-storey extension is approximately 100m2 and whilst only adding one room per floor has enabled the original property to be reconfigured to create a more spacious and better flowing property with a better relationship to the rear garden.
