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 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.
