An existing glazed lean-to susceptible to over-heating was replaced with a solid roof suspended within a glazed perimeter. The new birch ply-clad solid element is supported by oak joists which continue to the exterior as supports to terrace shading.
In the lounge an existing window has been enlarged to create a projecting window box, framing a view of the garden and providing a perfect seat. Ventilation is provided through two solid panels either side, allowing for a garden view of unbroken purity.
