Preventing persistent flooding of the ground floor from rainwater was the main focus of this retrofit scheme. By means of extensive soft landscape – in front and at the rear – to soak up substantial amount of rainwater and by introducing shaded porches – just by the entrances – shores off any potential flooding.
Then, the project brief was expanded for the main building to accommodate an extra living area on the ground floor, and an additional bedroom, two bathrooms on the upper floor.
