The owners of this secluded property wanted to extend to take advantage of the panoramic views southwards across the open countryside. The deep overhang of the roof shades the midday sun, while bespoke sliding doors and a roof light create a visual connection between inside and out and through ventilation. A fine rust coloured punctured panel to the leading roof edge blends with the existing brickwork. Generally, the materials were carefully selected to sit well with the host property, juxtaposing yet complimenting the history of the house.
