BRIEF

AJ Architects were tasked to provide an extension over an existing garage and to provide an additional bedroom accessed from the top of the existing staircase.

DESIGN

The proposed side extension was designed to follow the existing roof pitch within the existing side boundary of the original garage to minimise overbearing and to sympathise with the existing property and minimise any detrimental effects of adjoining properties.

Access to the additional bedroom is from the top of the existing staircase landing though what was a window. The loss of natural daylight into the hallway from the removal of this window posed issues with limiting light so with the creation of a vaulted ceiling over the hall/staircase to provide electrically operated roof lights that now flood the space with light making it feel light and airy.

The bedroom extension was also designed around having the future possibility of installing an en suite; waterproof plasterboard was used and the rear window was designed to easily suit an en suite arrangement with planning for easy connections into the existing drainage.
