ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2019

Project Detail

Garden Cottage, Wing

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

In 2017 plans to alter and extend the Grade II listed Garden Cottage were redrawn following a fire in one of its large chimneys that fell onto the thatched roof. The project became a complete reinstatement of the property.

A collaborative approach saw the recreation of the original 1668 cottage, the refurbishments of the 1881 and 1978 extensions and the creation of a modern family room and kitchen.

The historical heart of Garden Cottage was meticulously restored, with a sympathetic single storey addition.

Project Overview

The project had to rescue the building after fire and water damage to the much-loved, historic family home whilst also taking the opportunity of adding an extension for modern family living.

The overall result had to be sympathetic to the building’s listed status and the multi-era aspects of the original building plus its historic village setting.

The high quality glazed and oak addition is in keeping with the original building but adds a contemporary and complementary aspect. The resulting building is an example of architectural chronology, with different periods in house building merging into a single narrative.
