The project consists of a two storey high space with a predominantly glazed roof with and large lantern light over, the building’s finishes have been chosen to complement the existing features of the building. In view of the existing property’s position over looking the cliff top and giving sea views over the channel. The end wall has been glazed to take advantage of the properties prominence The walls have been finished in stonework to match the existing facades with bath stone embellishments. The interior has been utilised to create a two storey high living/dining kitchen space and the interior has been decorate to accentuate the feeling a height in the room.

The builder has kept building control informed throughout the scheme through good liaison. The building has been SAP assessed to ensure that its thermal properties are in compliance with the regulations. The result is a very usable, light and airy extension which can be used for years to come.
