Grove Hill RoadContemporary Exterior, London
This rear extension was clad in black timber, adding a striking modern addition that contrasts against the period property, whilst complimenting the neighbouring black slate roofs and existing rhythm of openings.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Be modern – but sympatheticA black timber finish on this rear extension makes it stand out, and there’s no mistaking that it’s a new structure added to a period home. However, choosing black makes it sympathetic to the surrounding charcoal slate roofs and black guttering, creating a pleasing harmony. Staggering the back wall to mirror the shape of the original house also helps the new-build section look at home.
Box cleverThis two-storey rear extension is clad in black timber, creating a striking modern addition that contrasts with the period property it belongs to. The black does, however, nicely complement the slate tiles on neighbouring roofs, so that the architecture, while contemporary, also feels at home here.See more cool cladding inspiration
