Planning, design and construction services for developers, self-builders and homeowners


Figura was asked to extend this Listed Pub.

The significance of this local landmark made the design quite sensitive.

The new fabric-roofed restaurant is fully insulated and glazed all round. It opens onto beautiful landscaped gardens, its large eaves providing the covered outdoor terraces so popular with today’s diners.

The low profile of the roof enables the extension to have minimal impact on that elevation of the pub. The contemporary nature of the design sets it apart from the old building.

The original pub is an honest hand-made medieval timber building; this is an honest high-tech modern extension.

The design was applauded by the experts who vetted it, and received Planning and Listed Building Consent unopposed.
