Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury

Project Type: 
Single Storey Extension


This issue with the existing was not just the conservatory (hot in summer / cold in winter) but the rest of the house was disconnected from the garden, between the kitchen and conservatory there was a amaze of storage space / utility and WC.

The proposal was to knock this down along with the conservatory, utilise the existing kitchen space to accommodate the utility / clks & WC all on the party wall side, leaving a well-lit corridor that provides a not only a link , but visual link to the proposed replacement of the conservatory which accommodates the kitchen and open plan living.

There was a slope down to the garden so a split level between the kitchen and lounge was proposed along with a reserve pitched roof suddenly you’ve got a dramatic double height space.

This contemporary addition with Core 10 cladding was a welcomed thumbs up by the Conservation Officer for the replacement of the conservatory in a conservation area.
