Lower Rd.

Surrey, England

On Lower Road, the existing house had undergone a number of alterations that had created a maze-like interior of awkward rooms and a building with a very confused identity. The brief was to create a unified building form with clearly defined spaces that connected in a way that worked for this family’s modern day-to-day life.

Our proposed lightweight two-storey rear extension echoes the gable end of the existing house without competing with it. Internally, the kitchen is now the centre of the house whilst two clear axis connect the front of the house with the rear garden and all the rooms in between. The new first floor bedroom gives the existing bedrooms more breathing space and creates room for generous en-suites and bathrooms. The family home now has a logical flow and a new level of design clarity, that exploits the views to the magnificent back garden.
