Status : Under Construction
Location : Canterbury, Kent
We have designed a relatively modest rear extension to this large detached property. The additional footprint has effectively doubled the size of the existing kitchen / dining area and a series of practical alterations internally have reorganised the existing home to provide a new utility room, coat cupboard and downstairs WC. New glazing was also proposed to the existing living room, and a Juliet balcony to the master bedroom, to maximise on the views over the extensive garden that this house enjoys.
Our challenge was to design an extension that would not detract from or dominate the attractive proportions of the existing rear elevation. After several attempts, a shallow regency style canopy roof was considered appropriate, and acts to unify the existing house with the new proposal in an imaginative yet restrained manner.
