LUTON ROAD, HARPENDEN
Our client wanted to extend their existing locally listed house to create a larger kitchen/diner with a social space for family and friends.
The house sits within the Harpenden conservation area.
The house does not currently address the garden so we looked at creating a visual and physical link with it by inserting large areas of glazing to the roof and walls. This would also bring in natural light and ventilation which it currently lacks.
The extension has been cleverly designed to give no indication
of the contemporary feel to the rear of the house by using materials and scale which reflects that of the original house.
Planning and conservation area consent successfully granted.
Glazing contractor: Culmax.
Building surveyor: Terrain Surveys Ltd.
Structural Engineer: David Carr Consulting Engineers.
