Leaf was commissioned to help a client in Rothley, Leicestershire to design a new two storey side extension to replace a detached garage to provide new integral double garage but also a therapy pool and new master suite above. Whilst the house was a well proportioned 1930’s dwelling with architectural details familiar to that period the rear elevation was scared by a modern conservatory and unsympathetic timber work and glazing. The client wanted a modern and bright kitchen and garden room space which Leaf responded with a typically modern approach using render to compliment the existing house but also blue zinc cladding to express the glazed sliding door elevation. Since gaining planning permission in Autumn 2014, the client has awarded the contract with the hope work starts in 2015.
