Hinton Cook

Weldon House

The growth of the family occupying the house meant that extra space was required, but the original fabric didn’t lend itself adequately to additional conversion, so they commissioned Hinton Cook Architects to design an extension. The site resides within a conservation area, surrounded by Listed Buildings.

The project aimed to expand upon key areas such as the kitchen and dining spaces on the ground floor and enlargement of the master bedroom on the first floor.

The extensions comprise an east ‘wing’ which contains a larger kitchen and new breakfast area overlooking the courtyard. On the first floor, the master bedroom was extended accordingly with a front aspect.

A balcony enclosed under the proposed roof overhang on the first floor is accessible from the master bedroom and offers relief to the elevation. This will in turn offer better views out of the master bedroom.

The eastern two storey extension wing was designed to be subservient to the western wing and not project beyond the garage. Find out more about Hinton Cook Architects.
