The Garden Room - JUST ADDED

Door open days


This project adapts and extends a spare bedroom to provide new Summer + Garden Rooms for this end of terrace Victorian property. The project exploits the south-eastern orientation and offered a welcome opportunity to resolve some awkward geometry through the creation of a new hard landscaped terrace (edged by a line of free-standing oak pillars).

The palette of materials acts as a deliberate contrast to the traditional stonework of the main house and includes hand-split oak shakes, sedum roof blanket, copper cladding panel and extensive areas of glazing. The ceiling comprises a zig-zag timber structure supporting a sedum roof comprising a variegated mix of heathers and mosses.
