E2 Architecture + Interiors was approached to convert and extend this existing 1970s stable and garage block into a fully accessible granny annex. The site is in an SSSI and the existing building is a protected bat roost. By a stream in the Test Valley this beautiful site had to be treated with care.
Accommodation of existing bat roost and timing the construction with the annual migrations and hibernations of three species.
Successful negotiation of a planning permission with adequate floor area to give a fully accessible home with space for a caregiver in a very restricted policy area.
The family have come together on one site with independence, dignity and interdependence all at once.
