EXTENSION TO HOUSE, HIGHBURTON
The brief with this project was to design an extension which would allow the clients to better relate to their raised rear garden. The extension provides a new entrance into the existing house. The new ground floor will provide new shower room and utility accommodation, with a staircase leading upto a light and spacious garden room. The clients were keen to explore a contemporary approach which would work with their existing house. The use of timber cladding, overhanging flat roof, zinc lean to roof and large areas of glazing all help to promote this aesthetic.

The property is situated in the heart of a conservation area in Islington, London. The planning authority were restrictive in terms of extension height, which lead to the project being designed with a flat roof. The client's wish involved extending into the rear garden with a contemporary approach, providing a contrast to the traditional design and materials of the existing house. The brief demanded an extension that would bring the garden into the home. The result is a curved cedar boarded structure with glazed sliding doors. Internally, in addition to an ensuite bedroom, a large kitchen / dining and family social space is created which leads out to the garden through the sliding doors.

This two storey extension was the result of a brief which once again strived to provide a much improved house and garden relationship. The existing house had one rear door, meaning the only access to the garden was via the house utility. The predominantly glazed extension houses a garden room at ground level, and a galleried workspace with Juliet balcony at first floor. The extension was constructed with a combination of natural stone and aluminium frame glass. The completed extension successfully brings the garden into both the ground and first floors.
