An existing traditional \u00a0detached house located in a small village near to Northallerton (North Yorkshire) was too small for the growing family. The householder is a well known interior design professor and has collaborated with Hardcastle Architects on previous projects around London.\u00a0The\u00a0side extension consists of two cubic forms that offset from each other and the original house and are clad in horizontal timber strips.\u00a0The form, openings, glazing, and material treatment were developed to both contrast and engage with the original traditional rendered and pitched\u00a0roof house. Extensive consultation with the local community and local planning department was carried out to ensure […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>
