The property is located in Charlton Kings which is to the east of Cheltenham town centre. The area contains an eclectic mix of properties of varying architectural styles and merit and our clients property is typical of the houses in the area which were built in the1970’s.
The proposals include an extension to the rear and over the existing garage to create a new kitchen on the ground floor and master bedroom & bathroom on the first floor. The first floor structure is intended to be read as a floating timber clad block, with closed horizontal timber cladding on the sides and an open vertical clad timber wall with glazing behind enclosing the master bedroom. The entrance below is delineated by dark soldier course brickwork to emphasise the void and the kitchen has a large vaulted ceiling lit by several rooflights.
