This project provides a contemporary extension to a traditional gritstone ‘Old Vicarage’, in the centre of Hope. It replaces a poor quality conservatory to provide an extension to the living accommodation with direct access onto a private east facing terrace.
Peak Architects’ approach was to create a simple room, providing a flexible relaxed living space, to be used at any time of day. The new garden room had only one façade and was formed mostly of a minimal glazing system.
However, great care and attention was paid to the new stone cladding and surrounding stonework of both the existing house and cemetery walls.
The new room identifies itself through this façade as a modern space and contemporary addition.
