    Nature softens the exterior of this conservation area homeAlthough this is a defiantly contemporary add-on to a Grade II listed house (in a conservation area made up of late Georgian and early Victorian terraces), it’s a soft and sensitive one. The designers, Fraher Architects, chose sustainable larch wood planks to clad the exterior, which tie in with the colours in the original brickwork.

    Stay naturalFinished in slim verticals of Scottish larch that have subtle detail, this dining room and study extension sympathetically joins the house to its terraced garden. It has a wildflower roof, too – an option to mull over if blending the new into the existing is high on your agenda.Find a local architect to help with your renovation project

    Is it possible to do an eco-build extension or refurbishment?Yes, it’s possible. But because you’re working with a pre-existing building, it’s not quite as straightforward as the blank canvas a new build provides. It’s especially complicated when it comes to building to a particular standard.‘Passivhaus is the main standard we aspire to,’ says Alan Budden. ‘But if we’re working on a refurbishment of an existing house, the EnerPHit standard may be more appropriate.’ The EnerPHit standard was developed as a good practice refurbishment guide for Passivhaus-style renovations, and takes into account the limitations of working with an existing building.Check out what you need to consider when planning a rear extension
