Both the form and materials of the design form a contemporary interpretation of the site. The long format bricks will bring raw architectural mass to the project whilst the external glazing and rooflights floods the space with natural light. The contrast between light and mass in the proposal forms the fundamental contemporary understanding of the space, and gives the design gravitas in an elegant and clean way. The darkness within the bricks will bring texture to the elevation and provide an architectural conversation with the existing palette of materials brought to the project by the house and garden. The side extension, forming the larder, utility and downstairs w/c, sits subservient to the main extension clad in a contemporary dark zinc/tata steel finish.
Brick is back! This is our first project of 2019 hot off the press! We are always looking to push new ideas and use materials in an effective way. The use of grey facing brick with a stack bonded solider course will give this domestic extension a robust but lightweight, horizontal appearance. Hope you like it….
The proposals will be submitted to the local planning authority soon…….
