We were commissioned to create a large two-storey family home on the site of a former Methodist church (which had latterly been used as a youth centre). Planning conditions insisted that the New Build should be sympathetic to the original building on the site.
Our main aim was to create a building large enough for a family which felt spacious, light and airy. We maximised available day light by fitting two sets of large floor to ceiling glass panel double doors in the main living area and kitchen.
The entrance way, in the centre, of the building, was entirely constructed from glass panels and sits over two storeys so that it could allow as much daylight as possible into the area. The roof above the entranceway had three triple glass Velux windows while the roof on the rest of the upper storey (or mezzanine level) also had Velux windows fitted along its length..
A double garage with porch area allowed for tidy parking. Easy access to the A19 was one of the features of this property, which sits on the edge of Teeside. The front of the living area of the house had a matching porch to the garage, providing a pleasing feeling of balance. The design of the house both inside and out was contemporary.
