The Lodge was “Built as a lodge to Netley Castle which was remodelled in romantic picturesque Gothic style between 1885 and 1890 by John Dando Sedding for the Hon. Col. Sir Henry Crichton.”
The original building was a small, two-storey, Grade II listed dwelling that had been left unoccupied for a time and was uninhabitable. The brief was to refurbish the existing building and create an extension.
The footprint of the extension was kept below that of the original Lodge and they are connected via the retained single storey extension to minimise the visual impact of the extension. The old and the new maintain their separate, individual identities and act as a counterfoil to each other.
The intricate detailing of the Lodge has not been copied and the extension is much simpler in design. Straight lines, simple profiles and different materials form a counterpoint backdrop to the existing, thereby helping to enhance its character by contrast rather than replication.
