Wolf Hall, Staffordshire by Broadway Malyan

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] Broadway Malyan has revealed images of this 120m² extension to a post-war cottage in Staffordshire

The project features a new timber, prefabricated two-storey wing and a 6m-long glazed ‘orangery’ attached to the existing 80m² house – described as having an ‘awkward’ L-shaped layout.

Project leader Aidan Ridyard said: ‘The design employs a strategy for “incremental sustainability”… [namely] getting the basics right initially, with options for the client to add more systems over time as budgets allow.’

He added: ‘The scheme is in a conservation area, overlooking a village green to the front and open fields to the rear, and hence rather sensitive.

‘We were really delighted to have had great support from the planners, despite some local objections.’

The base of the scheme will built from aggregate made from demolished buildings on the site and there are also plans for a grey water reclamation system and to use sand supplied from a local quarry.
