Kings Row

Wallingford, Oxfordshire

A single-storey stone-clad extension, designed and built to compliment the Grade II listed residence against which it sits.

An existing ‘80s conservatory was removed and replaced with a contemporary garden room, designed by Anderson Orr Architects in close collaboration with our client.

A glazed roof section and feature glass capped well, within the garden room itself, were significant considerations to the build specification. Particular attention was given to the bridging between old and new structures, in particular, the lime plasterwork framing the old stone outer wall and copper faced timber detailing. The matched coursed stone and cast-iron guttering are in keeping with the rear facade of the property.

“Fundamental to the client’s brief was the introduction of extensive roof glazing running the full width of the extension and flooding the space with natural light.”
Anderson Orr Architects

Design

A considered material palette combines frameless glazing and stonework to match the original, perfectly bridging old with new. Detailing includes a seamless polished concrete floor and terrace, lime plasterwork and copper faced timber detailing.

Heritage

After careful negotiation with the local planning authorities, to ensure the setting of this Grade II Listed property was respected and its historic fabric preserved, every care was taken to ensure that all elements of the build lived up to the prerequisite standards.
