Kirkliston House

Extension to House in Kirkliston, West Lothian

Design: wt architecture – William Tunnell

Kirkliston House

This project is an exploration of achieving a contemporary extension with simple forms and construction without compromising on the quality of materials detailing and spaces, all to achieve a significant extension within a very limited budget.

The original house is a very ordinary 1970’s detached suburban house with a generous garden. Typically there was no connection between inside and out and the new extension is orientated to respond to the garden and wrap the back of the house to give it a new identity.

The extension provides additional family living space at ground floor level, connecting into the original kitchen-dining room. A new side entrance to the house is also created at ground floor level along with a new WC/cloakroom. Above this there is a new bedroom accessed off the original landing. The new structures are all timber with larch cladding, with great care taken to fix full length boards from the bottom to the top of the building.
