Remodelling an Arts and Crafts House
Samuely have recently been working on the extension to this elegant house in Surrey.

The existing Victorian lodge sits in a large garden plot within the green belt and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The architects responded to this setting by creating a pitched gable roof for the single-storey ground floor extension, mirroring the main house’s characterful form.

A feature glazing element, constructed from engineered oak columns introduces a more contemporary rhythm and a depth to the façade, while respecting the existing's traditional materials palette. This continues the celebration of craft and materiality, while serving to fill the new open-plan family area with natural light to create a sensitively designed extension that greatly improves the usability, function and aesthetics of the house and gardens.
