Contract: JCT Minor works 2011
Role: Lead designer, Architect RIBA Work Stages A – L
Studio Spicer Architects was initially commissioned in 2014 to design a contemporary, single storey rear extension to this Grade II listed terraced dwelling. The project was extended early in the design phase to include a thorough set of repairs and adaptations, to bring the entire home up to a consistent level of finish and quality.
Located on the High Street in Henley-in-Arden, the property was land-locked to the rear, creating construction constraints, which had to be overcome during the building process.
The rear extension incorporates robust materials, which harmonise with the materiality of the listed building, but in a modern and contemporary manner. The result is both sympathetic to the existing building and distinctive and individual in character, ensuring that the setting of the original building is maintained.
Working alongside a well-regarded local contractor, the build was completed on budget and on time in summer 2017.
