The homeowners of this detached family home wanted a full-length extension to the rear of their property to increase the amount of living space for their growing family. The architects worked closely with the homeowners to devise a way to increase the living space while connecting their indoor and outdoor living areas together.
Rear extensions can be outstanding ways to improve properties whether that’s to increase the influx of natural light or to bridge the divide between the different living environments. Rear extensions can be filled with large elevations of glazing to achieve the highly desired indoor-outdoor living environment or create a contemporary aesthetic.
The rear extension to this property allowed the internal spaces to be opened up into a modern open plan living/dining and kitchen area. The open plan design opened the original ground floor areas to create a more contemporary living environment that was filled with natural light. Thanks to an installation of slim framed sliding doors, that ran the full length of the extension, natural sunlight was able to flood the new and existing ground floor rooms. The slim frames allow an abundance of light to pass through into the living space uninterruptedly.
