Location: Sissinghurst, Kent
Architecture: Contemporary Extension and Annexe
Having successfully obtained planning in 2019, we assisted our client in building of this modular off-site extension, along with the renovation of the existing house.
gyd delivered the brief without compromise and created spaces that the family enjoy all year round. During the design process, we highlighted concerns that the new spaces would result in the old part of the house becoming underused. Therefore, it was essential to make sure that these areas worked both independently of and together with the new extension.
The annexe has been a blessing, allowing relatives to stay for long durations and independent of the main circulation space. The children have great fun in playing in the large open plan kitchen/ dining, at the end of the day the family retreats to the old historic section of the house for a cosy evening by the fire.
