Emerging from lockdown: As the construction sites start up again, we are looking forward to another new-start on site in July this year: our remodelling and extension of a 1980s bungalow in Cromer, north Norfolk.
Set on a sloping site close to the top of the ridge over-looking the town, the existing H-plan, pattern-book home was built on the only flat part of the site where there used to be a tennis court. The building was not designed to maximise the qualities of the site and fails to capture the views of the sea to the north or the woods to the south. Our design flips the living and sleeping accommodation and comprises a series of contemporary, site-specific domestic interventions. The extension takes the form of a cranked plan around an over-sized flint, chimney. In the landscape, tiered, flint planting beds help retain the land whilst extending the language of the new extension up and down the slope to form dedicated garden areas for external amenity.
