The family have been living here for a few years, but due to some new additions they require more space.
The original house is a new, four bed detached property set within a small secluded development in Northwich.
Brief: The client wanted to remove the existing conservatory and provide a single storey extension across the rear elevation, extending the kitchen and living areas into this space. The existing loft was designed to accommodate a loft conversion, and the client wanted this work undertaken to provide additional bedrooms.
The single storey extension across the rear of the house provides good access to and views of the garden. Externally a brick was chosen to match the existing brickwork, and a similar brick detailing pattern was used. Internally the space is articulated through the use of an exposed brickwork wall, and asymmetrical flat rooflights over the living space and the dining table. Opening the kitchen into this area allows better communication between the kitchen and table making family life flow more easily. A new flight of stairs is located above the existing, and rises from the first floor to the attic. The attic was converted into two single bedrooms, together with a separate storage room. New rooflights had to be inserted in the main pitched roof to provide natural light into the bedrooms.
