The existing house is a semi-detached converted bungalow that sits on a corner plot with limited rear garden space.
The solution to this project has been to demolish the existing garage block to make way for a new-build extension infilling the same under-utilised corner of the site along the road boundary. The new extension encloses and hugs the garden along the eastern boundary creating a private and tranquil courtyard space at the rear of the house.
The design of the new extension has also been developed to take advantage of views over the surrounding countryside. Large full-height patio bi-fold doors from the new open plan kitchen space open out onto a new west-facing patio area which is screened from the public by the new 1.8m high stone boundary wall. Large full-height openings have also been deployed on the east elevation of the extension flooding the new spaces with light as well as creating a strong visual connection and enhanced enjoyment of the rear garden courtyard.
