Extending a Chalet Style House Creating Space for a Large Open Plan Kitchen / Diner and Courtyard


project location

project category


Double storey and single storey extension.


project description


The client wanted to extend this chalet style house single storey and double storey to the rear and change the roof from flat to pitch.


Unfortunately we were not allowed to extend the new rear wall all the way to the neighbouring boundary so we had to step it in. This created a quaint glazed courtyard area.


On the ground floor there was now space for a large open plan kitchen diner with bi-fold doors that opened onto the courtyard and a lantern over the dining table. It was important that we added the roof lantern and side window so the snug area didn’t become too dark.


On the first floor the extension allowed room for a large master bedroom and en-suite. The ceiling is vaulted with two roof lights creating a large light space.
