Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire

A modern glazed extension was added to amalgamate a 300 year old Grade II Listed Vicarage building with an adjacent cottage building in the heart of Hertfordshire.  The new glazed extension was formed to create a central open plan kitchen/dining living space where the family can congregate in one space and also to improve the connection between the house and the garden.

With the property being of his local historical importance, consideration was given to retain as much of the existing features of the property as much as possible.  Having very close dialogue and overwhelming support from the local planning department and the conservation officer, the glass extension was designed with the intention to create an architecturally distinct contrast with the existing façade of the property.

The extension was primarily designed with the intent to maximise the views out onto the generously sized garden and to maximise natural light into the interior space.
