The extension to this substantial stone villa seeks to open up the existing austere relationship between house and garden by creating a new light filled threshold space. The new family room orientates itself towards the sun and in doing so introduces a diagonal movement to the plan that offers an additional dynamic to the way the house is used. The timber and steel framed volume is clad in vertical stained weatherboarding with a zinc roof and the inside opens up to the garden through large glazed doors, picture windows and incorporates bespoke fixed timber furniture.
