Alteration to existing property, Within a Conservation Area


Julie Richards Architecture & Design Limited

Bath House , Bath Lane , Westhorpe , Southwell , Nottinghamshire , NG25 0NS , United Kingdom

The aim of this project was to create a family home specifically aimed at the rental market. An open plan arrangement dominates the majority of the ground floor providing a series of spaces with a visual and auditory connection. The newly extended area in the garden allows an opportunity for relaxation slightly separated from the main internal space. The arrangement of rooms upstairs reflects a more segregated approach, providing each family member with their own personal space to retreat to. The individual rooms were purposefully left as blank canvasses for the prospective tenants to personalise. The ground floor was completely reconfigured in order to expand the living spaces, by directing the flow along the main trajectory only and removing the dividing wall so that the boundary between the distinct areas was blurred, thereby giving an enlarged impression of the space. The external platform projects the internal floor level outside to create another alternative living space, weather permitting.
