Long Close House

Extension and  Alterations

Salisbury Civic Society Award 2022
The Lady Radnor Award
Most Outstanding Building

This project carried the responsibility of adding to an historic house that has been in the same family for three generations. Its 16th century origins had additions in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century. Each element reflecting the architecture of its time.

Our client’s ambitious brief was for a large extension, not in an historic style, but a design of this time.

The result has a contemporary appearance and introduces a large, high ceiling, multi-functional living room kitchen. A crisp modern glass walled space. Part of the extension is a reimagined former outbuilding that brings the delight of an oak framed roof overhead as you transition from the new to the historic house.

This is the second project with our client here that has received a Civic Society award.  That the product of our collaboration has been successful again is not a coincidence but a reflection of an ideal working relationship.
