Side extention and renovation of an imposing two storey dwelling in the Arts and Crafts style

Kingswood House is an imposing two storey dwelling in the Arts and Crafts style. It was built during the 1870’s, possibly 1873, and is locally listed. The brief included the construction of a series of new structures comprising a pool & gym pavilion to the immediate west of the main house, a games pavilion in lieu of the aforementioned garden house, garages in lieu of the aforementioned stores, and a gate house, as well the internal refurbishment of the main house and the addition of a balcony into the existing rear extension’s sloped roof.

The current proposal seeks to improve the existing accommodations and offer additional facilities to the property while preserving and enhancing its historic character and contextual integration. This is achieved through a coherent and holistic scheme derived from a strong analysis of the natural environment, regulatory context and heritage characteristics of the site. The proposal includes the erection of a pavilion containing an indoor swimming pool, a gym and a spa, to the immediate west of the main house. The scale and appearance of the pool house is of particular importance given its location right beside the main house, and within an area occupied
by a number of mature trees.

The proposed scheme is thought to appropriately answer the need for a general overhaul of the site’s facilities, while also addressing the concerns voiced by the planning authorities notably concerning natural and heritage considerations.
