Queensmere Road

A typical 1980’s purpose-built semi-detached property with poorly-lit and inadequate living space was adapted to create an open, welcoming and sociable family home.The brief was to create much-needed additional space with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space.

The key move included the introduction of a new full-width, single-storey rear extension (to the property’s rear) and involves removing a significant amount of the existing masonry.

The introduction of large external openings in the new extension and the installation of openable rooflights provides the west-facing open-plan living spaces with natural daylight  while improving the relationship between the internal and external spaces.

The extension is clad with a weathering (corten) steel to provide a contemporary aesthetic.
