The design for this single-storey extension explores the opportunities for creating a unique and successful addition to the rear of a detached home. We are often provided with a brief that requires the need for an extension to family living areas and to help provide a better connection between internal and outdoor living areas. Each project is unique, but our approach to each brief remains as focussed and meticulous as the next. We develop an understanding of place to inform the creation of space, with particular attention to the use of materials and details.
In this instance, the plan and form of the extended accommodation is uncomplicated. The straightforward geometry provided a space for us to focus on the details and selection of materials. The detailing of large format windows and skylights help to create a visual connection between internal and outside spaces, whilst the use of some materials both inside as well as outside further develops this relationship. The considered selection of materials helps to break down the simple square plan format and create a number of unique spaces within a single room.
The design and detail of this unique space helps to realise our clients’ aspirations for a unique extension to their family home that is both functional and enjoyable, whilst enhancing their family life.
