Temple Lodge, Richmond
This project involved the refurbishment of a disused Stable Building and Hay Barm within the Curtilage of Temple Lodge to provide a new single detached dwelling. The site is located to the South West of Richmond town and overlooks the valley to the River Swale.
The site levels allow the new extension to be set a storey lower than the existing stables creating two storey accommodation in a building that remains lower and subservient to the existing. The additional floor area created by the extension allows the dwelling to house three generous sized bedrooms. The extensions windows and terraces were designed to take advantage of the exceptional views out across the river valley to the South West and Temple Grounds
The extension has been constructed using traditional materials to reflect the local vernacular and match the existing stonework of the stable. Internally the extension has an open plan living arrangement and two feature oak trusses forming the roof structure.
