Whitfield House

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

The current owner of this beautifully preserved Grade II listed house wishes to respect the character, history and setting of the existing property, extending and adapting it to improve functionality for modern family living styles.

Our challenge has been to provide an extension and series of replacement structures of a modern design that restores, enhances and most importantly respects the dwelling and its setting. Both exterior and interior need to resonate comfortably with the style and heritage of the property with a modern twist where fitting, restricted to the rear / non-public elevations of the property.

The five key principles that have driven the proposals are as follows;

  • ensuring the scheme will be sensitive to the main dwelling and immediate setting

  • the site retains its rural / historic relationship, site history and building hierarchy

  • to ensure quality design and detailing is adopted throughout the design and construction stage

  • the design will respond to surrounding context and building lines

  • materials will be traditional and in keeping with the existing property and surrounding local context
