Bungalow renovation and remodelling in Ilfracombe
Taking a variety of approaches to solve the same problem
The Hill is a detached c20th chalet bungalow in Ilfracombe. The original house has been well looked after but like many chalet bungalows had been altered and extended over the years and this had led to a unbalanced home lacking in light, but one with many strong memories.
Our brief was to be bold! We were tasked with finding a solution using a contemporary design that provided them with additional spaces in which to pursue their recreational interests in art and music. They were also keen to create a highly thermally efficient building , utilising solar panels and other renewable energy sources. We set to thinking how we could we use the bones of what we had but give them a better quality of space internally as well as provide a thermally efficient and modern home.
