Planning approval has been obtained for a contemporary extension to a former farm house in Norfolk. The scheme provides a two storey extension to the main house providing additional living accommodation at ground and a master bedroom suite at first floor. In addition a single storey kitchen extension is located to the rear within the existing garden. The new building incorporates a grass roof, extensive roof lighting, overhanging eaves details and folding glazed doors to the breakfast area. The contemporary design approach was supported by our client, even though the Local Authority viewed the site as being very sensitive. The scheme received unanimous approval at the planning committee. Work is due to start on site shortly.
