Private Client

Drift Road is an Arts and Crafts style private home, nestled into the landscape looking down over Fareham. The Arts & Crafts style creates of the existing house provides a strong aesthetic. Our solution to remove a later and incongruous two-storey addition allows the original arts and crafts style roof form to steer the flow of the new extension. The result is a subtle and apparently traditional street-facing elevation, revealing the proportions of the original hipped gable which were previously obscured. Moving round to the garden elevation, the traditional form has transforms into a more playful and relaxed space, allowing a bright and open contemporary family room to connect closely to the outdoors.

The reinvigorated ground floor once again can be a series of flexible spaces for entertaining or just to suit family living whilst sensitively maintaining the original character of the house.
