Full width family room rear extension, an infill between two partially retained existing extensions, uniting them with a folded rubber roof

The infill roof takes on a stealth-like form crouching behind the existing brickwork. The roof is of folded rubber on the outside and plywood on the inside, wit
symmetrical rooflights flush with the rubber, allowing daylight to reach the heart of the house.

The 150 fiber optic points of light liven up the ply ceiling at night. The family room, opens up fully onto the garden, with a six panel sliding folding door.

The kitchen is bespoke, with birch ply carcasses, and stainless steel fronts and worktops.

Large flush glazed windows in the brickwork, complete a successful contemporary addition to this family house.
