Extension in Charlbury, Oxfordshire
The purpose of this project was to add a new Living area as an extension of the Kitchen space in this former farmhouse property. The clients wanted to have a well lit space to exhibit some art and ceramics they had collected as well and providing a dining and summer room.
The design intent was to open up the room to the rear garden and form a new wing that allowed the main house to be read as one element and this new wing. While built in stone and Cotswold plain tiles to match the main house from the front form the rear the change in the glazing to an aluminium system was intended to allow the new side extension to be read as a C21st addition.
The open interior was achieved to allow the light to evenly fill the room in a gallery effect and the timber board ceiling and Maple floor give the room a Scandinavian feel.
The remaining part of the extension incorporates a Utility room and side entrance. Externally a shaped paved area provides an outdoor dining space within the sheltered part of the garden
