Mill House on Site
Work has now started on site at this RBA Mill House restoration and contemporary extension in Salisbury.
Following a lengthy planning process, Wiltshire Council granted permission for the works earlier this year.
Roman & Fox Construction have now begun work on site. They are removing the existing conservatory to make space for the new extension. Internal renovations have also started. These include a sensitive restoration of the mill and river room. A outbuilding will be converted into an artist’s studio with a fully-glazed gable end and new roof lights. Landscaping works to the garden include the addition of a new terrace.
RBA designed the project with sustainability in mind. The work will be sensitively carried out using sustainable building techniques. To reduce the building’s environmental impact, the client is installing a water source heat pump to provide heat for the house and studio. The extension also has a green roof to encourage bees and insects. Daniel Ahern consulted on the ecological side of the works and provided valuable advice on the best way to protect the wildlife on site.
