Now here’s an interesting proposal. Below are three designs that extend a very small cottage to make it a 3 bedroom house (the small cottage is on the right hand side of each image).
We’ve gone in for planning and there’s a Further Information request concerning the treatment of one elevation. Bear in mind the following:
* The project is in rural Ireland
* The ground walls are to be limewashed white render with slates on the first floor and roof
* The client requires all spaces to be the right size and not enlarged for the ‘sake of it’
The images below show three alternatives, which one would you pick ?
The results will be taken into next planning meeting and I’ll let you know how we get on…
For those wanting a bit more site context, below is stitched panorama showing existing cottage and a bit of site:
Also, below is a section of the site layout plan showing more context & orientation etc… As you can see, the gable in question is facing South-East:
