House Extension

This project, for a two-storey rear extension to a detached 1980s chalet-style house, was to provide a new lounge, master bedroom and en-suite.
The existing bathroom dormer was extended to enclose the new en-suite, while a new section of roof allowed a link between the existing house and the new two-storey element.  
The asymmetry of the new roof was a somewhat intuitive gesture - a necessary response to the geometry and form of the existing house. To the external palette of brick and black weatherboarding we introduced white render to complete the composition.
