Set close to the centre of one of the Peak District’s most picturesque villages, the owners of an historic Georgian stable block appointed One Design Architectural Services Ltd. to develop a proposal for remodelling and extending this family holiday house into a permanent residence for their forthcoming retirement.
Although the current layout of this previously converted building was found acceptable for short holiday visits, the design was awkward and inconvenient ……. and not at all conducive to all-year-round living.
One Design Architectural Services Ltd. worked closely with the owners and developed initial sketch concepts into a final design that has now been submitted for planning consideration. Whilst conserving all the existing historic features, the proposals will remodel the majority of the existing ground floor layout to create a new entrance hall, boot room, utility, cloak room and an additional contemporary open-plan living / dining space which opens out into the original walled garden. At first floor, an extra guest bedroom is also proposed.
