From the architect: The owners of this large detached Edwardian House, wanted us to work on designs for the building that would open up the internal rooms and embrace the large mature garden. An existing garage is to be converted into much needed store and utility room that sits nestled into the banks of the higher level garden.

The Clients are creatives with a passion for textiles and art work. The proposal looks to express the internal patterns and lining of the building, as a tailor would do by exposing a patterned lining on a cuff of a shirt. Brickwork from the the existing building is brought down to the floor plane and turned up to create the plinth for the snug extension.

A large weaving room sits at the top of the building with archive storage walls holding materials, cotton, wools and dress making equipment. The building fabric is to be fully upgrading, including solar tiles, MVHR unit, Solar Hot Array, Air Source Heat pump, replacement triple glazed windows, external insulation and green roofs.
