Remodelling & Extension

Working with an existing 1960s estate house we designed an extension and transformation that involved removing the roof and adding projecting cubes in contrasting materials. Extending the property at the front, sides and rear, whilst internally we reorganised the whole layout. Unusually our design which includes cantilevered first floor rooms over the lower level results in the first floor accommodation having a larger footprint than the ground floor.

From drab estate house to striking modernist contemporary home, this is one extreme transformation.

Designed: 2010
