Kelvindale home extension completes
November 7 2012
Conceived by the clients as a means to better connect social spaces within the home and better connect these with the garden the extension adopts a contemporary aesthetic, introducing a new kitchen space.
Practice partner Emma Ellson said: “By using a limited palette of durable and high quality materials, the extension creates a successful modern addition to this 1930’s built dwelling. The use of zinc standing seam roof provides a naturally pleasing aesthetic when viewed from the upper floor which will eventually weather to a matte grey over time, complementing the existing slate roof.
“The use of a crisp white render, allows a sharp, contemporary aesthetic to the new extension directly contrasting the dry dash finish of the existing property, with the white glazed brick providing a robust highlight as a plinth. The use of high performance, full height glazing was promoted to maximise natural daylight within the extension, with sleek powder coated metal frames, specified to enhance the crisp lines and detailing of the extension.”
