Wellesley AvenueContemporary Exterior, London

This narrow rear return extension transformed this house, creating a kitchen diner that maximises the internal and external space. The clever storage and shelving means the kitchen works well for the home owners and folding doors to the upstairs bedroom provide lots of light into the room and seating and storage within the room too.

Sarah Warwick added this to Here’s Why You Should Clad Your Extension With Timber31 Oct 2017

Fill inThis two-storey extension between two end-of-terrace properties has a timber frame and a Douglas fir exterior together with a sedum roof, bringing a touch of nature to a town setting. It’s worth bearing in mind that a timber-frame, timber-clad addition makes less substantial foundations a possibility, which could save on build costs.See more extension ideas

Timber This timber extension looks so beautifully made, it might as well be a piece of handmade joinery. The blond wood makes a striking contrast to the heavy brick walls either side.

Ascertain whether they can help with planning permissionFor anything like an extension or a larger project, you’ll need architect’s drawings and you may well need planning permission, too. This can be a daunting process if you’ve never done it before, but some building firms will actually take on this planning aspect of the project for you. They will have architects who they work with closely and regularly, and they will be experienced in the planning application process. See what you need to consider when planning a rear extension

Serve it on the sideThe next step up from a side return extension, this is actually an infill extension between two end-of-terrace properties. This two-storey space is built with a timber frame, clad in Douglas fir and planted with a sedum roof, which provides additional greenery – a lovely feature for an urban property.Are you angling for a side return?

Même remarque sur le mariage entre le contemporain et l'existant, ici sur une parcelle anglaise, qui sont très souvent étroites.
