Featured in Don't Move, Improve! 2021

Much more than a simple extension, Charred House has been completely reconfigured at ground floor level, delivering changes that make a huge difference to the quality of life in the house. Internal spaces are now linked in a way that suits modern living, and benefit from a strong connection to the rear garden, through an oriel window and glazed pivot door. Material choices are warm and tactile to create a relaxed and comfortable ambience. Externally, the extension presents a distinct personality, with stock brickwork, charred timber, and gold flashings installed in a measured composition.
