18th Century Dwelling Extension Feasibility.
Flint built house extension with modern comforts.
New architects feasibility study.
Fingerprintstudios Architects have been commissioned to provide a feasibility study to design a low energy extension to an 18th Century Dwelling. The client wishes to have a modern 21st century energy efficient extension that allows for all modern comforts whilst enhancing and adding to the character of the existing building. We are using traditional flintwork and redbrick wall construction with a working oak frame to create a contemporary addition to this historic dwelling.
Oak frame construction and flint work construction.
We are proud to bring you a taster of the proposal for the dwelling which uses a traditional oak frame, flint stone work and modern construction methods to create a striking piece of architecture. The oak frame construction uses traditional construction and joinery methods but used in a modern way by creating a two storey double height living space. A feature brickwork chimney adds to the striking piece of architecture. The flint work will merge into the existing 18th century dwelling providing an addition to the wealth of character that the building all ready has.
Modern technology and reduced heating bills.
The new extension will use traditional construction methods but using new modern methods to improve the air tightness and insulation values providing a lovely habitable place to live without the addition of high energy bill prices found in historic buildings. This extension will have all the character without the expense of heating an old property. The use of PIR insulation, air tightness membranes, internal wet plaster, solar heat gains and thermal mass will all assist in providing a lovely loving space for this 18th Century Dwelling Extension Feasibility.
New contemporary living and kitchen space.
A new contemporary kitchen, living and dining space on the ground floor and a new master bedroom with living area and en-suite bathroom with all the modern features, will provide a welcomed house extension. This home extension will provide new accommodation and the design will be a welcomed addition to the existing building.
