PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL

Contemporary extension to period home - Suffolk Essex border

The brief here was to add a feature kitchen and dining space to a large, previously extended Victorian house.

We designed a striking extension intended to suitably contrast with the materials and proportions of the original house and yet remain subservient in form.

The inverted ‘gull-wing’ roof design allows for high level glazing to bring light deep into the building plan while also providing views of the garden and the sky.  The vertical oak cladding adds a pavilion feel to the structure and authenticates modern era of its construction.
