LANESIDE was a 1930's character detached dwelling on  primary residential lane within the seaside town of Milford-on-Sea; set in substantive gardens and grounds. However, whilst the home had many features and elements reflective of its period (such as sweeping, hipped roofs with exposed eaves and rafter feet/substantive brick chimney stack(s)), it also evidenced some of the 'pitfalls' for 21st century living of heavily compartmentalised spaces with limited views to the exterior space(s) - leading to lowly lit main interiors which were crying out for opening to other rooms and the garden(s). The design approach here was to introduce a link element between the existing kitchen and living room which, in conjunction with extending the hipped gabled element over the kitchen, enabled each space to have its own character and definition whilst also being open to each other. Hence, the property now has main living family spaces flooded with natural light with direct views and access to the gardens beyond.
