This project was a full renovation of an existing bungalow in Cheltenham. We designed a single storey extension, doubling the floor area of the property and renovated the existing building to reflect a more efficient layout. The brief was to ensure the clients could live in the dwelling throughout their retirement with level access throughout. Creating an open plan layout which embraced the garden and the south west orientation was another key requirement of the design and we achieved this by creating courtyard spaces and not restricting the size of the openings. Contemporary materials such as uncoated zinc and Shou-Sugi-Ban charred timber cladding were used to contract from the existing dwelling. Overall, a great project to be involved with, for lovely clients.
