We were appointed by the client to modernise their existing 1960s detached dwelling at 83 Long Road. It was important to deliver a well-integrated design that enhanced the character of this busy through road into Cambridge, whilst adding new and improved living accommodation to the house. We did so by carefully responding to the existing scale, form and massing of the surrounding area, and respecting the rhythm of frontage detailing and materials.

The original 2,000 sq.ft house was extended by a further 1,900 sq.ft, mainly on the ground floor, creating three living areas and a relocated single bedroom annexe. The spaces have been designed with flexible family use in mind and can be opened or closed off depending on the occupants’ requirements.

The spray applied render and timber cladding finish have been carefully and sensitively chosen to respond to the character of Long Road and the adjacent development at Clay Farm.
