This residence comprises one portion of a grand Victorian semi-detached property nestled within the esteemed Harrogate Conservation area. Through a thoughtfully integrated expansion, a compact extension now encloses a staircase, facilitating secure internal access between the ground floor kitchen/dining zones and the inviting basement and garden areas. This meticulous renovation has significantly enhanced the connection between the lower ground floor spaces and the lush outdoor garden.
In a striking fusion of tradition and modernity, the extension manifests as a contemporary interpretation of the timeless lean-to design. Elements of the existing house's overhanging soffit and eaves intricacies are artfully referenced, with the glazed wall elegantly framed by an extending soffit.
The outstanding outcome of this endeavor has garnered a series of prestigious accolades, including the distinguished RIBA Yorkshire Award and the esteemed title of RIBA Yorkshire Small Project of the Year.
