About the project

This project is a garden room &office extension to an existing detached house. The extension was conceived as a simple contemporary 'box of light' incorporating full height glazed sliding screens to the south &west and electrically-operated skylights in the roof to provide a direct relationship with the garden and constantly changing light. New openings were formed in the rear wall of the existing house to connect the kitchen and dining room with the new garden room and allow the spaces to flow together. The kitchen was also re-planned and a new white-oiled oak floor installed throughout to further enhance this. The extension is clad in zinc to contrast with the render &brick of the existing house, and opens out onto a new larch deck.
