AMArchitecture was approached to design a small extension to extend the existing kitchen, provide a sleep area with garden access for the dogs, and look at ways a improving access to the front door, rather than to the more prominent back door.

A simple and elegant solution was created by adding an entirely new single storey kitchen adjacent to the existing house. This in turn, enabled the relocation of the front door to bring visitors directly from the garden path to a new entrance hall at the centre of the house. The utility room behind provided access to the garden and parking to the rear.

A timber frame, oak clad structure and terrace will be elevated off the ground level on a masonry base, tying back to the original house and elevating the extension above the flood plain. A fully glazed west elevation will provide both views and access out to the terrace, garden and riverside beyond.

Planning permission was also given for a new first floor bedroom and ensuite over the existing modern sitting room and garage structure to the rear.
