Why does every side extension need to be different? The Modern Side Extension is a homely and uncompromisingly modern answer to the question of how to extend a terraced home. Respectful to neighbours, the Modern Side Extension shows that the smallest architectural projects can be transformational. No columns, no dodgy glazed infills, no ostentatious materials. The composition is a subtle game of solid and void, breaking down the threshold between old and new, inside and outside, a simple solution that can transform the way your home feels. We are more than happy to make another one, please contact us if you would like us to replicate this design on your home.
Outside, the conservation area-friendly brick, glass and bi-fold doors unite in a complex three-dimensional composition. Inside, the materials – polished concrete floors, brick, European oak and white sprayed MDF joinery – are warm and unpretentious.
Slim aluminium bi‐fold doors and frameless rooflight glazing ensure the distinction between inside and outside is dissolved; in effect making the exterior another room of the house and allowing light to permeate deep within the property. A simple skylight opens the home to plenty of light. Its a simple composition that encompasses long and tall views to sky and garden. Simple.
