The brief was to extend and adapt the property to provide self-contained accommodation for a disabled resident. The dilapidated garden store has been adapted to provide sleeping, living, bathing and cooking accommodation and this is linked to both the house and garden. Liaison with experts was imperative and specialist technology and bathing equipment have been incorporated, to ensure the family’s ability to remain within their home. This arrangement gives independence and security but with integration to the main family house.
