Residential Addition, Preston

A rather lovely existing timber villa was let down by its assortment of tatty ‘lean-to’s’ that accommodated an inadequate kitchen and external WC. The lack of connection and coherence in the arrangement of spaces meant that the occupants (a family of four) tended to remain in their bedrooms rather than socialising together.

The brief was one of problem solving. With the bedrooms remaining, all the fun was to happen out the back. A generous rear yard, although south facing, surrounded by tall mature trees invited an opportunity to open the house up and out.

The response needed to capture the tall views to the south while gaining a northerly orientation and not overshadowing the rear yard. A link and courtyard between the existing house and addition, allows views from the snug to the rear landscape, creating visual connection with acoustic separation.

Apart from added functionality, environmental performance, and enjoyment of a new house, the overwhelming difference has been the increased family interaction and connection that this new environment allows.
