The village of Thornham is situated on the north-west Norfolk coastal road and has many distinctive traditional buildings. Ravens Court is tucked away off the main road and is a relatively modern courtyard development. As the houses are on the boundary of a conservation area, traditional materials and detailing have been used.
We have been approached to formulate a first floor extension on a single storey wing to the west of the house. A series of feasibility studies that we have developed enable the client to explore various ideas and to see how the potential schemes would sit against the existing building.
The proposal uses traditional roof forms and materials that will blend with the local aesthetics, but we have included some contemporary twists.
The scheme gained planning permission in September 2015 following the planning process through Kings Lynn & West Norfolk Planning. Construction work started in January 2016 and is in the final stages of completion with a series of joinery items being completed.
