Extension to a 1950s semi-detached estate house



Dining area overlooking rear garden

Dining area overlooking rear garden 





In this project, a typical 1950s semi-detached house with a stark Northerly aspect to the rear is refurbished and extended.

Large rooflights have been positioned so as to align with the functions of the home below. The length of these lightwells allow for the rear of the house to benefit from Southerly light in the afternoon. Dropped plaster bulkheads to either side of the interior means that the space is lit by reflected, rather than direct daylight providing the interior with varying daylight throughout the day.

The exterior is finished with brick and pebbledash in common with the front elevation of the house. To try to bed the extension into its surroundings, a brick plinth incorporates a raised planter outside the kitchen window containing a small chef's garden planted with herbs and spices, which will in time bring the garden within arm's reach.
