This extension utilises deep vertical oak fins allowing direct views into the garden while providing privacy when viewed from the side. Internally, oak beams and ash-veneered plywood furniture storage walls either side provide a sense of enclosure.
All timber elements, including the façade were fabricated and preassembled in a workshop by a father and son team prior to putting it together on site. Close collaboration and open dialogue between the joiner, architect and engineer during fabrication was key to the realisation of the project. The modules’ joints had to be designed in such a way that considered how they were to be transported. The off-site fabrication resulted in a quick and cost-effective site-build.
