|Graphite Studio carried out a Feasibility Study for a project involving the comprehensive refurbishement and extension of a small cottage which has been in the same family for 360 years, since it was built. It was named by one of the members of the family following time spent in Southern Africa.|
The existing building will be sensitively brought up to modern standards and a large extension to the rear will create a new open plan kitchen/dining area on the ground floor with a master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. As the site rises towards the rear, the extension will be built into the ground with a retaining wall.
The exterior materials will be natural stone, timber framed double glazed sash and case windows and traditional dormers with slated roofs and haffits.
