Fife Architects provided this initial design for a client looking to maximise their existing kitchen for their expanding family and provide a better relation between their house and large, well cared-for garden. A generous dining extension was proposed, built in timber and clad in Scottish Larch timber cladding, with a full height glazed gable overlooking the garden. The natural slate roof extrudes over the glazed gable to provide shading and maintain a level of comfort internally in warmer weather. A new porch, built in the same style and method as the dining extension, will be located at the main entrance of the house with a built-in outdoor bench to the front.
Fife Architects have now been commissioned to develop the design to planning stage with a view to building in Summer 2013.
