Extension & Renovation to Listed Farm house

Existing: 135m2 Proposed: 75m2

This listed farm house may not look like everyone’s dream home, with primitive modern necessities and no heating... but with fantastic views. Our client wanted to renovate the existing, being respectful to its listing and character as much as possible. Due to the limited amount of accommodation space, an extension was required. It was Ke-design’s approach to splay the extension at an angle to run with the slop on the site, which also meant a gable capturing the views. It was our plan to hide the extension behind its own wall so that it would be ‘subordinate’ with the existing. Unfortunately Conservation had other ideas, and after some toing and froing they got their way. Still we think we have come up with an interesting design solution to satisfy them.
