Timber Framed Extension: Planning Permission Granted.
We are pleased to have obtained planning permission for a side and rear, single storey timber framed extension in Calne.
This 1920’s semi-detached house is currently cluttered with a number of single storey extensions. Planning was approved this week for a extension that wraps around the side and rear of the house creating a triangular plan form that avoids any significant impact on neighbours. Internally, the existing spaces will be opened up and re-arranged for more delight and practicality whilst continually reinforcing the improved connection between inside and out.
The internal footprint of the new extension is relatively modest in comparison to the main dwelling. The formation and dynamism of the plan helps to create an interesting space in which more of the footprint can be utilised.
A material palette of burnt timber cladding and redbrick combine to echo the materials of the existing dwelling, whilst the minimal glazing systems and sedum roof blanket reflect the woodland context in which the property is situated. The design incorporates some of the original 1920’s detailing; the external posts which support overhanging roofs replicating the balustrade detailing within the heart of the existing dwelling for example.
