About the project

Initially, my Clients were unsure about what could be done to open up their house and make it more family friendly. After a couple of design meetings, a plan and form was developed that achieved all their aspirations for how they wanted to live in the house.

By using natural materials such as stone and timber, a contemporary addition to this regular house has been designed. Light will flood into the interior via roof lights and high level strip windows that give the impression that the roof is floating above the walls. A deep roof over hang has been incorporated to shade the interior from direct sunlight to avoid over heating. The roof over hang also acts as a shelter to the veranda for the clients to sit outside even on rainy days. Internally, the rear and an internal wall was removed to open up the interior of the house and link it with the extension and the garden to the south.

Key Features

– Modern rear extension

– Natural materials

– South facing patio with a deep roof overhang

– Open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
