The White House, Clifton

The combination of sensitive architecture fully coordinated with high-quality landscape architecture mark out this full width extension to a listed building. While flat-roofed extensions are often unfortunate additions to historic structures, this design shows how attention to detail and an understanding of the setting can be a positive addition. [The careful and contextual detailing, the consideration of views of the original house, the quality and appropriateness of the landscape architecture and, in particular, the way they all come together as a unified design make this an exceptional example of its kind.]

Architect: Ferrey & Mennim
Developer: Owner
