Brief

Create a single storey extension to the rear of  house on Ailesbury Road, to create a contemporary family space that is sensitive to the historic fabric of the house.

Response

Our design strategy at Lafferty Architects was to integrate the kitchen, living space and garden (which had previously been cut off). By improving the natural flow between these spaces, the new single storey delivers a living space with a fully glazed facade to enable the client to seamlessly retreat to a private sanctuary adjacent to the rear garden.

The client is delighted with the extension and refurbishment. The creation of a modern contemporary home that fulfils a growing family’s needs and provides a seamless counterpoint to the formal entertaining space on the floor above.
