The Forge and Linden Lodge are given the go-ahead

July 2015

FlowerKittle Architects in collaboration with CMF property consultants are happy to announce that two projects have been granted listed building consent and planning approval; the Forge and Linden Lodge respectively.

The Forge, a grade II listed building in East End is a 17th century, two-storey attached cottage which is part of an L shaped block. This has been added to in the 19th century and extended.  The proposed works consists of the rebuilding of a single storey extension to the rear and internal modifications to create a large habitable area; designed to enhance the existing building and provide natural light and direct access to the garden.

Linden Lodge is an existing detached dwelling located in the Upper Wield Conservation area. It was proposed to replace a portion of the existing rear lean-to extension with a new two-storey extension and rebuilding a single storey extension to the side of it. Importantly, the designs focus on rationalising the rear façade in terms of form, detail and the internal spatial configuration. The front porch addition aims to provide a more generous entrance sequence to the building. Form and materials have been carefully considered to enhance the buildings fabric in keeping with that which is found locally in the conservation area.
