EP Architects, were recommended by a previous client to provide architectural services to design a single storey side extension and internal alterations to this 1960’s private semi-detached house.
The brief was to design a modern flat roofed, highly glazed extension to allow views over a well maintained garden. Due to the sloping nature of the site the extension sits into the lawn to the north of the site and opens out to a patio to the west. The clients were very involved at an early stage by providing mood boards and also in the choice of external materials and the look that they wanted to create in their project, which was welcomed.
A large flat roof light provides light over a large dining space, in addition to the large sliding patio doors. Internally, the existing dining room was divided to provide a large utility room and cloakroom, accessed from the kitchen and providing rear access to the garden and garage.
The extension is quite different to the original house, yet compliments it, with its simplicity and strong detailing.
