The extension provides an example of how simple geometric form and attention to detail can create a unique, light-filled addition for great family living.
The brief from our client was to provide a light filled extension to their home, and to create an open plan area focused on social family living. The client has a love for cooking and an added element to the brief was to provide a unique kitchen, which was both functional but a joy to cook in.
Beginning with the simple form of a brick cube, openings were carved to create slots of glazing and lightwells, bringing natural light deep into the living space. A slight shift in plan creates interest and helps to define internal spaces. Contrasting brickwork continues the visual effect of separation, with the help of deep shadow lines. Further penetrations open up views of the rear garden and augment the connection between the internal and external environment.
