New Build, Within a Conservation Area


Elliott Architects Ltd

24 Battle Hill , Hexham , Northumberland , NE46 2EB , United Kingdom

This development proposed to retain the original building’s envelope, remodel the ground floor layout, and add a partial second storey. The proposal to use the existing fabric of the building was an intentional approach which allowed for maximising accommodation whilst minimising the footprint on the site. An extension to the South creates a large open plan kitchen, living and dining space with physical connection to the rear garden. The new first floor accommodates 3 bedrooms and a master suite. Materials include blockwork with render finish to the ground floor and timber frame with naturally finished timber cladding to the first floor extension to which creates a clear identity of old and new. The approach to materials was to use traditional materials with modern detailing to create a bespoke yet affordable scheme.
