Beaufort Road

Brief

This large Victorian semi-detached house had a small kitchen/dining room located in an original two storey rear extension. An underused north-facing strip of garden ran between this and a garden wall shared with the neighbour.

Response

We designed a side/rear extension providing a large kitchen/dining room with an eight metre wide bi-fold door arrangement. The angled plan form turns the rear elevation into the afternoon sun, creates a triangular external courtyard area and minimises the effect of the extension on the attached neighbour.
