About the project

This semi-detached house was too small for the client's young family, they needed more space. This extension incorporates a home office, a shower and utility room at the front, with an open plan kitchen / living / dining space at the rear. The full height and width glazing provides a stunning backdrop to family life and the large overhang beyond the glazing provides an intermediate zone, where the family can enjoy outdoor life on those less than perfect Scottish Summer days. It also provides shade from excessive glare and gives a strong formal proportion to the rear elevation.
