About this project

Moor Park is a grand country house estate dating from 1859, and includes model farm barns and outbuildings. We were asked to design an extension to one of the former farmhouses, to enhance and extend the existing accommodation for family use. Planning permission and building regulations approval were granted in 2014. The design of the proposed extension allows a clear and simple definition of new and old, offering architectural clarity by expressing the extension as a contemporary addition. The link between the extension and original house forms a visual separation below the existing eaves. By retaining the existing eaves line, the massing of the original house remains intact and the semi-detached pair of houses remain clearly readable together, in style, form and prominence. At ground floor, the extension provides a living space for family use whilst the existing living room is retained as a snug. Internal spaces are better connected and offer improved access and views to the gardens. At first floor, the extension provides a fourth bedroom with en-suite and sheltered gable balconies offering long, open views across the open fields to the north and Moor Park to the south.
