The proposals for this unique and contemporary extension create a successful addition to a family home that responds to its context, whilst embracing the long views of the surrounding landscape and preserving the character of the Conservation Area in which it is located. The brief from our client was to provide an extension that is carefully and sympathetically designed, suited to the needs of the growing family.
In responding to this brief, we have drawn our design from the immediate context of the surrounding fields, a landscape that is in constant flux, which is continually changing throughout the year. The varying widths and depths of Western Red Cedar timber cladding will weather with time, to a silver grey patina. Sawtooth brickwork details reflect the movement of the undulating fields, and a green living roof brings the meadow and landscape deep into the inhabited landscape. Large windows and sliding doors enhance the relationship with the garden and augment the connection between internal and external spaces. The design and materiality create a unique and continuous dialogue with the surrounding and continually changing landscape, whilst providing a successful addition to our Clients' family home.
