Proposed as an extension to an Arts and Crafts house in Surrey, our contemporary design maintains proportional harmony with the existing structure. Two projecting bays on the first floor mirror the window bays of the original house, ensuring a balanced composition. The extension serves as a seamless progression of the building, eliminating unsightly additions and offering a master bedroom suite and a family room on the ground floor.

In terms of aesthetics, we propose a white brick plinth divided into two bays, visually referencing the original house’s white render and red clay tiled roof. To minimize visual mass, the extension is set back on the first floor and clad in red clay tiles, further harmonizing with the main roof and tile hanging of the original structure. A pre-cast stone string course unifies the new two-storey side extension to the east and the remodeled 1960s extension to the west, effectively integrating architectural elements from different eras into a cohesive whole.
