• Create an extension which is sympathetic to its surroundings, elegant, efficient and suitable for modern living…and unique.
  • The living spaces of the ground floor extension should focus on the garden.
  • The extension should be well lit with a number of rooflights above the ground floor living space and ample windows allowing good sightlines.
  • The roof form should allow for solar heat gain, which currently poses a significant problem.
  • Design a kitchen and dining space to cope with potentially 20-30 guests.
  • A free threshold to the rear is required for elderly relatives.

The extension form takes its lead from the eccentric composition of the rear façade, the desire to ‘turn the corner’ and the creation of an external wood store space…

Samskara have designed the extension to ‘frame a beautiful garden’, giving a splendid view from the dining space and kitchen alike.

The kitchen design provides as much storage & preparation space as possible without festooning the walls with units. The space is equally suited to a summer garden party as it is a winter’s feast…

Form follows function…clean lines…daylight…
