This was a full renovation and extension to a bungalow , set on the limits of a rural village in Aberdeenshire.
A ground floor extension to the rear of the property provided additional open living accommodation to the kitchen and dining space and provided access to the outdoor area and redesign of the outdoor providing decked area and hot tub.
The new first floor accommodation gives additional living space, and an additional master bedroom with en-suite.
Various material interventions to enhance the building fabric were used. The roof was replaced and the existing wet harled render was replaced with a combination of white silicone render broken up with sections of Siberian Larch cladding. Siberian larch cladding is not only sustainable, but also reflected the site context from the quiet tree lined street side and mature trees in the rear garden landscape.
Due to the topography of the site a 2m retaining wall was introduced to maximise usable garden space providing a large lawn area, raised beds and a polytunnel for home grown vegetables. Caithness stone was specified to clad the structural retaining wall and finished off with a frameless glass balustrade.
