The house is a five bedroom Victorian semi detached house in Westbury on Trym. The front façade has a Pennant stone with Bath Stone window surrounds. The side and rear façade is brick faced. There was a small double storey side extension, garage and a tall dilapidated conservatory with a narrow utility room lean to extension at the rear.
We designed a wrap around rendered extension which complements the brick façade. A new entrance and storage space were created at the front, a new toilet and utility / boot room are directly accessible off the entrance hall.
The dining room is located in the new extension that features wraparound glazing with a set of three aluminium doors which brings the garden into the house. The real feature of this space is an air conditioned wine cellar located in the new extension directly behind the boot room.
A flush glaze rooflight was added to the extension to bring light into the kitchen situated in the darkest part of the layout. Discreet lighting illuminated the area and complements the minimalist feel of the handleless units.
The rear rooms were opened to create a snug featuring a fireplace and built-in units. The glazing allows easy access onto the generous and sheltered courtyard, perfect for outdoor eating and entertaining.
