Extension & consolidation of Georgian house in Hampshire
A Grade II* Listed house in Hampshire dates from the late eighteenth century with later additions. However, various elements were demolished or altered in the 1930s leaving the house unbalanced and incoherent. Extensive historic research enabled the new designs to echo the original composition and restore a sense of balance. An upper storey has been reconstructed over the drawing room, with a matching symmetrical wing to the west. Each has a simple pediment with a Tuscan modillion cornice in the Regency spirit. A new library has also been created on the site of the original Victorian morning room. The additions are an important part of the evolution of the house, enabling it to continue as a modern family home for years to come.
