private house extension
The client required a single space extension to reflect a contemporary lifestyle, which could be used for both living and entertaining. Carved out of an existing embankment the rectangular space has glazed panoramic views to the gardens south and east.
Designed to sit within the landscape the extension has an oak pergola and roof garden which will eventually blur the distinction between building and site. A zen garden stepping down to the east contrasts with the glass facade at its top. Natural oak and stone flooring impart a timeless quality to this calming capsule.
