When our clients bought this ground-floor home, it was dilapidated and stuck in the 1970s. However, with a spacious southeast-facing garden and an overall great location - it was not hard to see the potential of the home.
The focus was on restoring the relationship between the garden and adjacent rooms. Working closely with the structural engineer and contractor, we arrived at a structural approach and detailing that allowed the extension to be placed as high as possible, resulting in bright interior spaces.
Extra-large three-meter-high Meranti doors open to the southeast-facing garden, letting in as much daylight as possible with fresh air coming in through the expansion windows between the doors. By building the entire addition out of pine, we wanted to create a quiet and natural atmosphere in the interior spaces overlooking the large fir at the back of the garden.
With an eye for detail
The custom framing and construction details provide a subtle sense of craftsmanship within the all-wood extension and give the home a unique appearance
High doors catch lots of light
Detailing the facade in such a way that the doors project upward in front of the roof maximizes the amount of daylight inside the home
An all-wood extension gives a home a natural atmosphere and creates a sense of tranquility. The large amount of glass also provides fine light within the various rooms. Also interested in a special wooden extension? Please contact us to talk about your dream home!
