Planning secured for Anstruther cottage renovation
February 28 2019
Architecture practice LBA have won planning consent for a radical renovation of an existing cottage in Anstruther, Fife, by subdividing an existing property into two homes.
Located at 5 Ellice Street on the edge of the Cellardyke Conservation Area, the project will see the current dwelling extended via a single storey rear extension and boundary wall through the current rear courtyard.
This will provide additional living space in the form of an open plan kitchen with glazed double doors opening to the garden.
Upstairs an attic level will also be extended around the existing stair, with a dormer window added to create a third bedroom.
As part of this work existing garages will be removed and replaced by a separate three-bedroom property alongside.
Reusing an existing retaining wall the new property will present a dark rendered wall above, punctuated by a long horizontal entrance referencing existing garage doors. Corten steel windows will break up this volume, including a feature picture window to the western elevation.
Associate Brian Tobin said: “This is a very exciting project, it presents a fantastic opportunity to create a contemporary intervention within historic fabric. We have daring client with ambition and a belief in good design. We look forward to delivering this for her over the coming months.”
