Conversion and extension to a suburban home which maintains the uniformity of the streetscape
The shell of the original house has been retained and used to accommodate the main open-plan living areas within a single double-height volume.
All the other spaces are contained within a long single-storey extension that runs along the length of the site and skewers the original house to form a new porch at the front.
A long corridor with a continuous glass roof that terminates with a framed view of the garden runs the entire lenght of the building and provides access to the four bedrooms, study, bathroom and laundry.
Full-height flush-glazed windows and doors along the south elevation provide direct access onto the terrace from each of the bedrooms, and maintain the clean lines of the new wing, clearly distinguishing the extension from the existing building.
