Materials and designs were to be sympathetic to the existing construction, and extensions were to minimise disruption to the existing house roof by utilising a flat roof and parapet. Full planning was gained in November 2017 and works commenced on site in September 2018. Other major works include substantial internal remodelling to form a new lounge, playroom and home cinema complete with 3m long saltwater aquarium integrated into the walls.
