Extension and remodelling of Victorian house, Pudsey, West Yorkshire

February 2012

This double fronted Victorian house sits proudly on a good sized site in a residential area of Pudsey. Although the front of the property has a real distinguished appearance, the three remaining sides of the house lack a certain quality. Being fairly exposed too, the house misses a private external space. Our brief was to create a modern looking design that would provide a new contemporary open living area to the ground floor, and two new ensuite bedrooms to the first floor. Our proposal re-orders the existing interior walls, and adds a large new side extension, designed in such a way as to create new private exterior spaces that are easily accessed from inside. The new extension will be constructed in modern materials to help provide a visual break between the old and new.
