A re-imagining and retrofitting of a modest 3-bedroom 1970s bungalow within one of the most sought-after suburbs of Glasgow to create a substantially enlarged and energy efficient modern house to suit our client’s passion for open plan living and love for traditional and contemporary architecture.
Newton Mearns, Glasgow
Residential Home Design
The easy and more cost-effective solution would have been to demolish the existing house and replace it with a brand-new home. The client’s passion for sustainability and preserving heritage, even though the house was not listed or in a conservation area, has however resulted in a sensitive yet honest design that reconciles the opposing passions of our client for traditional and modern architecture.
Building a substantial L shaped wrap-around single-storey extension enables the creation of the additional floor space needed to meet the client’s lifestyle and accommodation requirements, while the new cantilevered steel frame structure on the south façade allows wall to wall glazing with open views to the generous garden grounds across the new veranda.
