Shingle-clad Extension

This extension replaces a previous outdated and unused sunroom that was always either too hot or too cold.  Our clients wished to add a luxurious, cosy and comfortable family drawing room to their house.  This freestanding solution is connected to the house by a glazed link, with a flat zinc roof that projects beyond the building envelope to create a veranda along the house’s gable.

The link was designed to accommodate two antique Indian arches, sourced by the client, which mark the threshold into a vaulted room where an enormous open fire and feature oak truss provide a dramatic yet cosy, garden-embracing living space.
