Single story extension with a tilted wild flower turfed roof located within a conservation area
The extension, largely constructed on the plot of a dilapidated lean-to, provides the Victorian dwelling with 10 m2 of extra floor space for use as a family kitchen, dining and play area.
At the point where the extension meets the twisted stair case a corridor gradually widens to provide space for domestic activity and a wider passage opening to the adjacent utility room. The corridor then narrows to become the entry point to the new kitchen and dining extension.
The lowered floor in this open plan kitchen and dinning space allows for increased levels of privacy between the dwelling and its adjacent neighbours.
The timber and other material linings follow and fit to the various angles of the buildings form and floor plan, both internally and externally.
