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.
– Self contained annex for a family member
– Connected to the house but with a separate front door
– Designed to compliment the main house architecture
