Studio Spicer Architects were appointed in 2014 to design a contemporary rear extension to this previously re-built barn conversion, replacing an existing poorly performing summer house.

The project aimed to incorporate most of the rear elevation and included building up to the party-wall line. Early discussions with property neighbours led to an extension of the project, to include their brief, too.

The project, a well detailed and aesthetically pure structure, was subject to very tight budgetary constraints and high expectations for quality.


The project was completed as a Design & Build early 2017.
