The Rise, Darras Hall

Project type: Large Two Storey Side and Rear Extension and Reconfiguration Design

Design in detail

On The rise, Darras Hall, Northumberland, properties often provide exceptional opportunity to extend (or even rebuild). The homes are mostly on large plots and were constructed at a time when homes, just like cars and everything else, were just much smaller. Today’s modern family needs and wants more space.

This family wanted enough bedrooms for the kids to have their own, and still some space left over for friends and family to crash when the evening turned to a night. The ground floor came with the usual issues of disjointed family life. The team at Acre Design, worked closely with the clients and came up with a number of workable options to provide the bedroom accommodation that was needed. As well as a layout to the ground floor that brought the family together.

A large open plan space including a stunning kitchen – with pantry and utility off to the side- dining and living space, a gym area, snug room and office to the ground floor. To achieve this, we designed a timber frame, two storey wraparound extension, to encompass the side and rear elevation of this home. The roof was tricky! We came up with a mansard roof design that provided beautiful light wells above the open oak staircase, flooding the open hallway and staircase with light. The clients internal design flair has really set this project off. And Lottie, the miniature golden doodle, is very happy with the underfloor heating.
