Listed Building - Grade II


Designscape Architects Ltd

Toll Bridge Road , Batheaston , BATH , Somerset , BA1 7DE , United Kingdom

Originally dating from the C16th, this Grade II listed House in the heart of Somerset is built from the local Ham stone and has been modified and extended over the centuries. The brief from the client was to re-organise and upgrade the existing accommodation and to carry out repairs to the historic fabric. The first phase of this work involved the relocation of the kitchen from the centre of the house into a new extension which connected it with the garden. The scale, massing and materials of the sensitive new addition respect that of the historic house yet is unmistakably contemporary in detail. The house remained occupied during the two stages of work, which also involved the repair of the listed stables and a number of environmental improvements.
