Dingle View, Waterhead
Dingleview is located in the hilly countryside that surrounds Oldham. The original house has been added to with a hotch-potch of extensions over the years which has left the original house feeling cluttered and lacking in identity. Our proposal creates order by removing the chaotic organisation of the previous extensions replaced by one extension to the rear of the original house.
The design fuses together a modern and contemporary extension with the vernacular charm of the original house that clearly defines what is new and what is old. The new extension forms the back drop to the old house restoring its identity. In plan the design opens up the house into a much more logical, rational and fluid arrangement of spaces with framed and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
