Character cottage extension
We were pleased to be invited back to see a recently completed MGA-designed domestic extension to a traditional cottage in North Lancashire, where the clients together with their builders, TCL Construction, have brought our designs to fruition.
The contemporary single-storey rear extension has created a through living space with a marvellous aspect on to the beautiful fields and church beyond, balancing the predominantly glazed elevations with an imposing stone fireplace. The extension reflects the home’s traditional details, while using contemporary detailing to great effect. The high-quality finish was obtained using local materials and suppliers, where possible, coupled with high-insulation construction and renewable heat sources.
“We wanted to create a true garden room that would allow us to enjoy our garden throughout the seasons from the warmth and comfort of our home. In addition, we wanted to take advantage of the wonderful views into the National Park and tidy up the back of the house to complement its double-fronted front door appeal. MGA’s contemporary design has successfully blended the old and new, bringing the outside in and giving us a home we can really be proud of.”
