Previous design work on an extension in Nether Poppleton

Currently on the market in our local area of Nether Poppleton is a stunning revitalised family home which has certainly stood the test of time for the rear extension, designed by one of our very own just over 20 years ago.

The riverside property mixes historical features such as mosaic flooring, sash windows and re-clamped external brickwork, with complimentary contemporary values; with the use of cedar cladding being one of the main focuses externally and exposed laminated Glulam beams internally, this period property extension has a very natural and airy feel as well as not only matching the old and the new, but brings the outside in.

The original design of the extension was always to be sympathetic and reflect the primary use of the building – originally two cottages, the owner has combined them together to create a long-lasting space that his family could grow up in. The large natural wooden frames throughout the back of the home allows for the remarkable river views to be maximised and experienced from all living areas, as well as making the most of the Westerly evening sun.

We will always be excited and dedicated to our new projects and clients, but it’s just as exciting to us to revisit older projects and be able to appreciate the positive difference architecture can make to a thriving community.
