This project was for the extension of a cottage for a private client. The property is located within the small village of Horncliffe a few miles outside of the town of Berwick upon Tweed.

We were instructed to provide a full architectural service from inception through to practical completion of the works consisting of obtaining statutory consents, tenders and managing the Form of Building Contract.

The brief was to create an extension to house a new kitchen/dining area with bathroom and utility room in the place of the existing. The proposed was to house a more usable space that was larger where the client could cook, entertain and sit and enjoy an outlook over the garden.

The client wanted a contemporary feel that was light and spacious and wanted a feature exposed timber truss with the connections of the trusses celebrated. Roof lights were placed in the southern facing roof slope so to bring direct sunlight into the space to create almost shafts of light to flood the space. Other windows have been placed in the elevations to frame views out the garden giving a different view depending upon where you are and what you are doing.
