We worked carefully through a number of different options, to testing ideas of layout, scale, materials and atmosphere with the client and their budget. The end design will enable their family to stay in their home as the children grow up.
The project is currently at documentation stage, and the extension to the building is a large open plan space, focusing views from the kitchen and dining areas into the garden, and giving a bit more privacy and enclosure to the living area. An overhanging roof and sculptural shading device prevent the space from overheating in summer, but allow North light to warm and brighten the kitchen in winter.
