This project involved extending and updating a Grade-II listed 19th century former lodge with an unsightly 1970s addition. The scheme has not only provided much-needed extra space but has also improved the property’s appearance. This is a sensitive site on the edge of Northington Park estate. While the lodge house has fine knapped flint walls and some stone detailing, the previous extension was clad in poor quality materials. Moreover, the old addition didn’t make best use of the space and needed to be rethought. A new extension was seamlessly blended to the 20th century addition, which was given a makeover with brick cladding, traditional clay tile hanging, plain clay tiled roof and timber-frame windows. The extra space enabled a large family kitchen, master bedroom suite and family bathroom to be added. The original house was completely remodelled, including moving the entrance, new plumbing and electrics. Floor-to-ceiling windows afford views of the garden and countryside beyond.
Pro Vision provided architects’ services and designed the scheme from concept through to detailed drawing stages as well as town planning and heritage advice securing listed building and planning permissions.
