The aim was to create a contemporary and energy efficient family home whilst retaining the existing property's sense of openness and light. The proposals combine requirements for flexible contemporary living with energy performance targets. Insulation upgrades to wall and roof elements and additional windows were installed. The design maximises natural light within the dwelling and retains an intimate relationship with the garden.
