The proposals remove two infill and wrap around extensions replaced with with a single wing that extends the original pitched roof volume of the living room facing south over the Moor to form a vaulted dining room and working studio.  Large sliding glazed doors open on to a terrace and frame spectacular views of the Moor beyond.
