Listed house extension, North Hampshire

Listed house extension, North Hampshire

This Grade II listed building was originally built as three agricultural workers’ cottages in the seventeenth century, before being converted to a single dwelling in the 1920s. Our clients wished to update and enlarge the accommodation whilst retaining the character of the historic building. The works involved the creation of a new range of reception rooms and bedrooms along the rear elevation, overlooking the garden and Watership Down beyond. The new building elements are deliberately additive in style, the various volumes broken down to suggest a series of extensions created over time. In this way the important entrance elevation remains unaltered, and the new works are largely contained within the original silhouette of the house.
