Our clients wanted to create a contemporary garden room, which complimented the existing period property. The impact of the extension from the roadside was to be kept to a minimum and our concept was to conceal the modern behind an old English garden wall. The construction of the extension is a traditional beam and block floor with masonry infill walls. Four hardwood glulam beams, sourced from Germany, support the roof and provide a distinctly contemporary take on the traditional form. The overall mixture of modern living and generous period detailing create a wonderful family home.
