This is a single storey extension and renovation to a converted stone farm building in Northumberland.
The design includes a meter high waterproof concrete plinth, timber cladding and large format glazing.
The extension will house an open plan kitchen living area and will be buried by nearly two metres and will slot into the landscape within a tiered garden design.
The client has asked for a simple muted palette of materials, including polished concrete floor and light timber kitchen units. The muted colours will help to amplify the greenery of the garden, viewed through a large set of sliding doors and a dramatic up-and-over window.
