Award Winning House Extension, Haytor, Dartmoor National Park
This award winning project consists of two modern extensions to a 1920’s bungalow near Haytor. The existing house is of little architectural merit and did not relate well to its garden, but has significant historical interest as it was first owned by a close friend of Agatha Christie. The garden features much of the original planting, including gifts from the writer to her friend. The new sun room responds to the landscape with a curved expanse of glass offering panoramic views across Dartmoor and an intimate relationship with the garden. The new front entrance is a green oak structure supporting a glass roof allowing natural light deep into the house.
