A little extension for a growing family

Looking back at one of our early projects. We were approached by our client who wished to extend their semi-detached home. With their family growing and the change in working patterns, more space was clearly needed.

Our proposals followed our standard process of establishing a brief, analysing the site, identifying the constraints and opportunities, and exploring different options varying in scale.

Maximising the available space was a main consideration. By changing the position of the front door we were able to create a more useful and spacious entrance lobby for coats and boots. A new utility connects the entrance with the kitchen, allowing views towards the garden when entering the home.

Different options were explored for the roof height and shape. As a result, a mezzanine was considered which could connect the kids bedrooms in a fun and unique way.

Externally, the proposal was to use bricks as the main material but in a different colour to differentiate the existing vs the new. Colour accents were used to highlight the entrance and window reveals.

We really enjoyed working on this one!
