1970’s Bungalow Transformed into a Striking Contemporary Home

Project: 1970’s Bungalow renovation
Architects: Selencky Parsons
Location: Peak District, England

We were tasked with a brief to transform a dated, 1970’s bungalow in the Peak District into a striking contemporary home which maximised the property’s aspect looking out over the Chatsworth estate. This was achieved through the substantial remodelling of the internal spaces as well as by adding new elements creating a porch, garden room and dormer window.
