The brief from our client for this new home was to provide a single storey dwelling to the rear garden of their existing home, and to provide a design that was both ‘quirky’ but in-keeping with the traditional vernacular of the surrounding area. The internal layout organises rooms and spaces in a logical and hierarchical manner. The quieter bedroom and study areas are collected together and located to the far side of the property, whilst social and living areas are located nearer the main entrance to the home, wrapped around a central terrace and entertaining area. Large open plan living areas address the rear south facing garden, where glazed walls and fully opening foldaway doors help to integrate the internal and external areas of the dwelling, creating a seamless transition to the pleasant rear garden. Projecting window box seats, and a timber clad garden pavilion with wildflower green roof, extend into the rear landscaped garden and help to augment the integration of the new dwelling into the established garden context.
