Paul Cashin Architects - Planning Permission Granted for High Street House, Twyford, near Winchester, Hampshire
Paul Cashin Architects are pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for our High Street House proposal. This is a contemporary architecture extension to a Grade 2 listed dwelling in the village of Twyford, near Winchester, Hampshire.
The proposal developed through discussion and collaboration with the users and the local Winchester planning authority in order to reach a design solution taking the form of a modern single storey extension providing a dining area, garden room, additional storage, utility and shower room facilities.
Due to the Grade 2 listing of the existing house, extra care and consideration was taken over the layout, impact and appearance of the proposal.
Inside, a refurbished kitchen leads to a glazed link that provides a distinction between the new and the old structures. Ancillary spaces are located off a hallway before the space opens up to a dining area and garden room. Timber flooring and a Birch Plywood finish to the walls and ceiling help to create a sense of cosiness and warmth, added to by a curved hearth and log burner. Full height glazing provides access and views to the garden on two aspects, whilst roof lights let light in from above.
Externally, the contemporary proposal is clad in black timber fins, to offset it against the white painted brickwork of the existing property. The timber cladding draws forward connotations with nature, it’s soft materiality and grain ageing over time. In contrast to the heaviness and boldness of the white painted brick, the timber cladding will help the proposal be viewed as subservient to the existing property.
