Hand crafted modern extension to Appledore home

Bespoke timber clad modern extension

We were thrilled to be able to develop a design to provide a well crafted extension to a small property very close to our studio in Appledore. 

The extension is a two-storey timber clad box with vertical laid Larch cladding, providing detail to the elevation of the new timber extension. The extension links back via a double height glazed stair to the original house.

The original house was a three story Victorian property that had a very small footprint therefore not providing the living space or bedrooms that the new owner required. The original house had a lean-to extension was poorly constructed and had limited head height which did not connect with the views back to the estuary. 

OCR Architecture's brief was to develop a design that created the additional living space that was required, but critically also provided a connection both with the gardens and the wider estuary. 


The contemporary nature of the design was driven to ensure that the home did not become a pastiche by adding a more traditional structure it’s also reflected the client aspiration for creating an elegant crafted home.

Working with a local construction firm Kingston construction the design was developed to ensure buildability on what was a restricted access site.

The design looked to marry an interior concept reflecting a coastal Scandinavian inspired interior which was felt to be suitable to the site and the outdoor lifestyle that the homeowner wished to pursue
