Location : Kirk Ella, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
Situated within the Kirk Ella Conservation area, designated in 1974 and extended in 2007, this Georgian cottage which was constructed in 1770 is encapsulated within the designated area which extends along Godmans Lane. The appearance of the conservation area reflects its historic development from a small village to a desirable suburb for wealthy Hull merchants.
This proposed modern extension has been designed to be subservient to the scale and massing of the Georgian dwelling, which helps to preserve the character of the principle building.
In order to maintain the primary street scene, the front and side elevations where designed to match the character of the existing dwelling, whilst to the rear the extension appears as a modernist addition, forming a positive contribution to the overall character of the dwelling. The new addition to the cottage will provide a new family living space, open plan kitchen, additional bedrooms and promote outdoor living.
