Extension in Malvern

KODA architects have completed a new House extension in Malvern Worcestershire. The project was to create a light filled extension in Malvern, Worcestershire for much needed additional space for busy family life.

located in the shadow of the Malvern Hills, the original property was built in the 1970s and benefits from a mature and sloping garden and views out over Worcestershire. The main entrance to the property was through the existing kitchen, which was cramped, dark and too small for the hub of a family home.

Project Information

Client: Mr and Mrs Hubbard
Budget: Confidential
Contractor: Wye Oak Timber Framing Ltd.
Location: Malvern, Worcestershire


The house was leaning to one side which was resulting in doors and windows becoming increasingly difficult to shut and operate properly. KODA architects and their approved structural engineers carried out a detailed inspection of the house and detailed a list of repairs to arrest this movement. It was found that the movement was still ongoing and the previous small porch was doing it’s best at bracing the structure against movement.A full schedule of works were drawn up to stabilise the existing building and to provide a new oak-framed breakfast room that acted as a buttress to the existing building.

Using natural oak timber framing a new morning space was provided for a busy family environment. The space doubles as a new entrance and the covered walkway provides a space for kicking off muddy boots.
