Sunhill Lane

Location: Topsham, Devon
Client: Private
Status: Received Planning Approval

This project involved the renovation of the existing two storey detached property and the addition of a contemporary extension to the rear. The curved extension provides a large living and kitchen area with expansive views across the garden to the rear. The design represents the fusion of the contemporary extension, harmonising with the traditional features of the existing dwelling. The materials used provide low maintenance and longevity, the timber cladding contrasting against white render making the extension appear relatively lightweight whilst also ensuring that the design does not compete with its natural surroundings.

The original character of the existing building has been retained with the main mass of the new extension being pulled away from the existing property, thereby respecting the dimensions of the original building and avoiding the creation of dark internal areas within the main dwelling.
