Gentle Harry’s Farm

New garden room extension in West Chiltington.

  • Planning approval for a traditional, timber conservatory had been refused.
  • Early engagement with the county architectural advisor helped identify an alternative solution to meet the owner’s need for further ground floor living area.
  • The result is a modern interpretation of a traditional lean to extension with a shallow ‘cat-slide’ roof.
  • The natural stone between brick quoins matches the detail of the existing house and an inverted dormer allows an existing first floor window to be retained.
  • A feature lantern skylight allows light to flood in from above, whilst full height glazing provides wide views out over the surrounding garden.
