146_contemporary extension inspired by victorian railway architecture
This interesting brief called called for a rear kitchen / diner extension inspired by Victorian railway structures that linked the existing house and garage. We developed the scheme with the client in a simple palate of materials including brick, steel, glass, polished concrete and untreated larch. The steel frame structure is composed of columns and lightweight steel trusses tying the building together. This allows two very large sliding door sets to completely remove a corner of the building, sliding away into pockets within the walls. This opens the space up to and provides fantastic views of the garden.
