Church Cottage
Flowton, Suffolk

Role: Design and Project Management

Scope: Residential Extension

Client: Mr & Mrs Fawcus

Value: Undisclosed

Church Cottage is originally thought to have been a single storey dwelling later extended into the roof and more recently enlarged by two modern additions. The accommodation was however muddled, dated and in some areas in need of remedial work. The project therefore comprised a number of different parts. The existing kitchen was in part demolished and replaced by a taller open ceilinged addition to bring light and space to the rear of the property. An existing corridor was removed and circulation and reception spaces remodelled. The roof was strengthened, the heating system replaced and externally a new entrance canopy added to redefine the entrance front of the cottage.
