Extension to Listed Property

This single storey extension to a listed dwelling in Woodbridge, provides light-filled accommodation to the new dining space created. The timber cladding, which obscures an external door and continues internally, blurring the relationship between inside and outside.

We were commissioned to design a lightweight, small section steel frame, hidden within the structural wall and roof fabric, to frame the glazed roof-light and to support the canopy above the bi-fold doors.

The project was not without challenges, overcoming underground obstructions; leaning perimeter walls; complications with the existing timber frame and temporary support to a substantial chimney.
