The owners needed to replace a very large and aged conservatory, too hot in summer and too cold in winter, limiting its use significantly. They chose a proposal which effectively extends the kitchen into the new build, opening up into a casual seating area to suit modern living arrangement, a home cinema and dining area will also be included with the original conservatory area being significantly reduced to a more regular size.
This now opens out onto a new patio area which is also accessed from the sitting area. The zinc roof was chosen for its compatibility with the stone and slate of the original building. Other internal adjustments are also being made to the house.
