Magnolia House Annex

About the project

After remodelling and extending our Clients house a few years ago, they have now asked us to design a annex extension for them to be able to look after a elderly member of their family.

We designed an integrated structure which replaced an old conservatory to the side of the house. A key element of the design was to create an extension that was sympathetic to the main house in appearance and form, and not simply a bolt-on box. We achieved this by using the same pallet of materials and geometries. The extension was broken down into elements so that the pitched roof line wasn’t too high and so that the structure had it’s own strength. An existing Wisteria plant will be trained to grow over an Oak pergola structure at the front of the extension.

The result is an annex that is both integrated and sympathetic to the house while and forming a strong addition to it.

Key Features

– Self contained annex for a family member

– Connected to the house but with a separate front door

– Designed to compliment the main house architecture


"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
