Bio: The private clients approached Peter Dickinson Architects with the intention of creating a rear single storey extension to provide further living accommodation and a bedroom with en-suite facilities for an elderly relative. The proposed extension was to be an extrusion of the existing living space, connecting the inside with the rear garden.
As the property was semi-detached the relationship with the adjoining neighbours was crucial during the design stages. As a result of this consideration, the proposed extension was stepped with a covered recess on the neighbouring boundary in order to reduce the visual dominance of the extension. The creation of this covered recess allowed for an external space which linked the new dining room to the rear garden.
Peter Dickinson Architects proposed various design features with the intention of providing a living space which went beyond a conventional extension.
The end result is a traditional extension with character design features. The extension connects the existing living space with the rear garden through large glazed doors. The use of exposed timber and brick work give the internal space texture which is contrasted by the sleek whites angles of the vaulted ceiling.
