A modest remodelling of a poorly used rear extension of a Victorian semi.
The garden facing space was formerly occupied by a Utility Room and Dining Room. Because of the difference in levels views of the garden from the existing Kitchen were blocked by the roof.
By relocating the Utility Room all the extension footprint became liveable space. A zinc-clad glazed roof box provided clerestory glazing and sky views. This continued through ninety degrees down the face of the rear façade creating a box bay window onto the garden. The organic form of the roof is balanced by the folded edges of the grey and black zinc.
The traditional replacement French doors serve as a contrast to the modern intervention.
