The new extension creates a quiet, central courtyard. Warm and durable, oak is used internally wherever activities or high traffic occur.
A single space to eat, cook, play and read was created, large enough for a table and integrated bench where all these activities can take place.
Based on ‘strips’ of glazing, cedar and engineering brick, views from upstairs windows – often unconsidered – clearly show the composition. Oversized frameless glass doors wrap up and over and link existing with new. Slim cedar cladding follows the glass and engineering brick delineates the boundary line.
