Project Description

Modern extension to a historic bungalow in Warminster, Wiltshire.


This is a contemporary glass box extension to an old farm bungalow, some of which dates back to C18. It includes a loft conversion for a master bedroom suite overlooking the smallholding. Although this dwelling is in open countryside and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) it flew through pre-app and planning with only the standard conditions. The client was keen to produce something that looked striking but also performed well environmentally. The upgrades to the existing property offset the large areas of glazing giving the client superb country views without compromising on thermal efficiency.
