Extension & Remodel
Orchard House is a 1980's detached dwelling located just south of Taunton. The brief from the new owners was to embrace the stunning southerly views, maximise natural light and create a strong connection with the garden. Improving bedroom and bathroom accommodation was also a priority. The original design, layout and construction was poor and lacking quality, which made the fulfilment of this brief a challenge.
The original front elevation featured a single storey pastiche portico structure. The clients love of wood informed the decision to replace this with a two storey oak framed extension, allowing eastern light to flood the upper storeys. A single storey highly glazed rear extension and triple and double storey glazed elements were introduced to the rear elevation, maximising views from all connected spaces.
