Contemporary extension to traditional cottage in South Devon
Garden room extension
We delivered a single storey extension to make open plan living a reality in this traditional South Devon cottage.
Have you heard of garden rooms? They’re perfect for those who long to be more connected to their outside space. And done well, they can flood you home with light.
Working with a family in South Devon, we were appointed to add a contemporary twist to their beautiful property. The original cottage, like many of its type, was full of character. However the downstairs areas suffered from a lack of light and the open plan space may of us desire today.
Our brief was to create a new entertainment and living space to enable the owners to connect with the garden. They were also keen to create a new bathroom on the first floor, and wanted to ensure all original character was maintained.
Our solution was to create a single storey structure, with slot windows to frame the view of the garden. We also juxtaposed the original building footprint with an angled façade to open up the site. The extension delivered on the indoor-outdoor living request, and now provides the owners with a fabulous space to relax in.
Think your home could benefit from a garden room? Talk to us about what you want to achieve, and after an initial site visit we will be able to talk you through the possibilities. It may be that a seamless extension is right for you, or your home may lend itself to a glass box conservatory or orangery.
