The form of the extension is informed by views from the original house out towards the fields at the end of the garden. A raised roof creates a generous volume for a new living space, whilst a lower section of planted roof respects the views from the existing dormer window. Although the extension appears detached from the pepper pot house, visual axes and connections have been created from the original house into the garden and across the extension to the new terrace.
A singular brick wall ties the extension back to the existing house, complementing the block work, tiles and brick quoins. Charred timber and zinc has been used to withstand and weather with the changeable conditions associated with the coast. The cantilevered deck and roof creates a sheltered area to sit and look out towards the garden, which floats above the landscape.
Clay plaster and a subdued colour palette helps to retain an element of cosiness between the new spaces and the existing house. The extension provides a large living space, kitchen, additional bathroom with an infrared sauna. The kitchen and joinery was designed in collaboration with BUHR.
