Extension to a 1960s house to provide new guest accommodation and spatial improvements
This extension to a 1960s two-storey house reads as an extrusion of the original house in terms of form, scale and materiality.
The addition is positioned at a slight angle from the original house to establish a distinct identity for the new guest accommodation. A glazed link, which joins the extension to the original house, sits just below the eaves to emphasise a break in the roofline that allows the old and new to be read as separate elements.
Inside the link, oak stairs lead to guest accommodation via a landing spanning the house and the extension. A large corner window exploits the structural properties of the timber frame. External materials are used inside the link, providing a sense of going from inside to out.
