House extension, Ugborough

This may be a fairly modest bungalow but it is at the end of the row, in an elevated position and has a wrap-around garden making it ideal for extending. It's the kind of project where one can make a big difference without doing too much. The proposal was to extrude the existing bungalow form, allowing the living space to open up into the roof void. We also designed an external canopy which would serve a number of purposes: creating an external sitting area, helping with overheating and providing a better entrance sequence.
