Project Description

BTP were appointed as architects on the extension and refurbishment of luxury private house, Windy Howe in Alderley Edge. The works have carefully restored original 'arts and crafts' features both internally and externally.

Set in the Alderley Edge conservation area, the house was built in 1903 by Architect F.W. Mee. The house is built in an Arts and Crafts style including clay tiled gables, roughcast rendered walls, stone window surrounds and stone details.

Key Features

Remodelling and restoration works included converting an existing garage to a media/games suite and a loft conversion providing additional living accommodation.

BTP designed the alterations using traditional forms and materials together with Arts and Crafts details that match those of the existing house. External walls had their roughcast render renewed, reroofing was completed in Acme Rosemary plain clay tiles to match existing and timber was painted in sympathetic earth tones.

We also designed a new garage for 3 vehicles, set seamlessly within the existing sloping landscape by excavating adjacent to the propert and constructing a green roof so that it sits below the level of the house.
