Build It’s favourite finds this month
This historic English cottage in a Hampshire village was given a modern makeover thanks to the addition of a glass-walled extension at the rear of the property.
Stephen Marshall Architects followed the owner’s brief to maximise views of the vast garden and create sunbathed interiors to enjoy during the winter months.
On the ground floor, large expanses of glass boost the inside-outside feel between the kitchen-dining room and the green slate terrace, which is accessed through oak doors. Above, a double bedroom benefits from the leafy outlook thanks to corner glazing.
The addition was incorporated within the gap of the original L-shaped footprint. However, the designers ensured the new structure is kept out of sight when approaching the building, to limit any disruption to views from surrounding countryside properties.
