The awards provide the opportunity to show how problems have been solved through a variety of creative solutions, from communication and teamwork to innovative designs and professionalism, that ultimately have led to a safe, sustainable, high quality, successful construction projects.

The Glass House - Best Residential Extension

Croft Architecture Award Winning Project

The property is a typical modest early 19th century Grade II listed farmhouse set within a conservation area and close to the greenbelt. Our team worked closely with our client, the conservation officer, the planners, and Building Control team to deliver a design solution that seamlessly flows from the old to new. Its simple appearance is distinctly contemporary which clearly contrasts against the historic form of the existing Grade II listed house, enhancing the whole.

The design has created a high-quality extension to the property that is sleek, spacious, flexible, and light. The clean lines of the extension respect the existing house and it sits comfortably within its surroundings. Our clients now have an open plan space that unites their friends and family, whilst seamlessly connecting their home with the garden. They couldn’t be happier.

"We are so pleased with our new kitchen and living space. The old outbuildings have been replaced with a contemporary lightweight glazed addition that provides us with a real connection to the garden both day and night. It is better than we imagined."
