Another interesting contemporary extension to a residential property

This client asked us to look at their property with a view to doing an extension to the rear.
The property had a markedly different level to the rear of the property, meaning that there was at least a 1.2 meter rise to the main ground floor threshold.
The client wanted the room to be another living room, the rear of the property faced north so we suggested designing the extension along the lines of a highly insulated Orangery to catch the sun from midday onwards.
The design has a fully glazed rear elevation, with access doors onto the rear garden. The roof, which is hipped, to have the rear plane fully glazed with high spec double glazing panels, The two side hips to be slated to match the main house roof.
We designed a mini spiral access stair down from the rear dining kitchen.
As there is such a difference in floor levels the roof needed to go up at least another half storey. This gave the room a feeling of vaulted airiness, and also meant that the rear roof hip, which is glazed, was more of a feature.
Now that the extension has been built it means that the client has an inviting room giving access to the rear garden. Previously they had to go through a porch, down some steps, across a parking area, through the gate into the rear garden.
This is another example of how we design to suit the site situation for our clients. Remember that we design by creating a virtual computer model of your house, so you will see your design before it is built.
If you have an awkward residential site, do not hesitate to ask us to look at your property and give our feasibility study, so that we can design to make your living situation better.
