Planning Permissions was obtained for this proposal. The breif was to design a thermally efficient space to take full advantage of views over a private valley and on to the Malvern Hills. The result was a conservatory/ sunroom extension with a three separate solid roofs. The existing property is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB), but the property didn’t take full advantage of the views. The brief was to increase the living area and provide an Oak framed conservatory in collaboration with Wye Oak Timber Framing Ltd.
The original propert consisted of a small two up and two down property. The property was granted planning permission in 1999 to form an extension with a modern, rendered finish to provide added living
space, however this cut off the views and reorientated the property towards the access track. Careful consideration was given to this proposal as the property had already been extended once before. The massing of the proposal was kept to a minimum whilst maintaining a level of traditional architecture.
Following pre-application advice with Herefordshire Council the design was given the ‘green light’ and granted the planning permission. The concrete slab was cast in January 2012 with the prefabricated frame erected within a week on site. The following weeks the clay tiles, single ply membrane and oak lanterns were installed which made the build water tight. This allowed the limestone floor tiles to be installed and the walls to have their final paint.
