Pool Hall Cottage : Listed building extension

AV Architects have recently helped one of our Clients acquire planning approval to extend a their home and listed building in Pool in Wharfedale. Working with other consultants several years ago, my clients ambitions to gain approval to develop the home were thwarted at planning stage. AV Architects reviewed the merits of the planning case and recommended a different and more sympathetic design approach which met with planner support and approval was granted in December 2017.

The exciting project now has building regulation plan approval and the design of the extension will transform the dwelling into a modern family home whilst retaining the character of an history building and the setting. The existing accommodation has an imbalance, offering reception area appropriate for a family living but only 2 bedrooms upstairs which are poorly conditioned. The proposed works will generate more space including 3 upstairs bedrooms and more accessible guess accommodation at ground floor. On entry through the front door the design will improve the sense of space with a more generous hallway.

The design is successful from a planning perspective, has more integrity in terms of the heritage context, offers spatial design benefit and is an efficient and cost effective way to develop the property with minimum impact upon the existing building and layout. Furthermore, the sympathetic architectural approach enables the project to be delivered with minimum disruption. With a phased approach, the dwelling can continue to be use throughout the construction works.

We look forward to seeing this project come to fruition in 2018.
