Contemporary Extension in a Conservation Area, Scottish Borders

Despite splitting local opinion, the extension to a traditional stone built end of terrace was granted planning permission in a conservation village in the Scottish Borders.

This was designed with the concept that a new addition in a Conservation Area should not simply try to blend in, but should add architectural interest to the area. It has created a lot of debate but has on the whole been positively received.

The wedge shape of the extension prevents overshadowing of the neighbouring garden. The long horizontal window is the splashback to the kitchen worktop which also acts as a light shelf, reflecting light into the room.

A steel frame construction and innovative use of modern building materials allowed for an external wall thickness of 150mm which in turn allowed for an increased interior floor area on a very tight site.

Insulation levels were far in excess of the required building regulation requirements.
