Newhaven Road House

Newhaven Road House

This project was completed in 2008 for private clients. Two small extensions allow the existing accommodation to be reconfigured and connected with the garden. The extensions themselves are bent canopies clad in zinc with glazed frontages, one facing the garden and a much smaller one providing a side porch.

Much of the work in this project was associated with the new connections into the extensions and making new windows for the adjacent rooms. A small snug sitting room opens onto the contrastingly open extension, and the original kitchen has been opened up with new roof lights and a separate door to the garden. A new bedroom has been created out of the former dining room, with a new window opening looking out past the new porch.

New slate paving runs from inside to out, breaking down the visual interruption of the glazing, and hidden gullies at the foot of the glass take water away from the building. A fixed window seat serves the dining table and a big pivoting timber door provides access to the garden, its frames held within the larger frame of the zinc canopy roof.
