Manor House restoration & extension, Hampshire
A Grade II Listed Georgian house with medieval origins that had undergone considerable modern alterations. The changes had greatly undermined the property's architectural value and ADAM Architecture was commissioned to undertake a scheme of restoration involving the demolition of a 1930s extension and its replacement with a modest cross wing. The new addition stands proud of the principal elevations, emphasising its aesthetic independence from the historic core of the building. In addition, the flat roofed kitchen is replaced by a new, single-storey pitched roofed structure constructed in handmade brick to match those of the new wing, with an oak-framed roof, open to view from the interior.
