Cookham Dean Common
A creative approach to volume and placement proved key to unlocking planning restrictions for this extension to The Coach House. The design forms a modern and spacious family home, remaining sympathetic to the existing traditional structure and Green Belt location.
Concise ‘cuts’ into the new building fabric create a fenestration rationale that responds to the non-domestic openings found in agricultural buildings, while the material palette and site layout respect the style of a traditional farmstead courtyard. Double-height glazed ‘links’ visually separate newer elements, thus minimizing the impact on the original Victorian Dwelling and enhancing views both to and from the surrounding countryside.
