Gross internal floor area
Pollokshields, Glasgow, is one of Britain’s first garden suburbs and is characterised by large stone villas set in mature landscaping. Our client undertook a two-phase project: a full conservation and renovation, and the replacement of existing lean-to utility rooms to the side and rear with new sitting and breakfasting areas.
The local tradition of attaching glass conservatories to homes is developed by partially glazing the extension. Internally the rear sitting and dining space opens onto a granite terrace giving an immediate relationship with the garden while
a more introverted and timber-lined snug with a vaulted ceiling and south-facing peep-hole windows centres the occupants around an open fire.
er-coated aluminium window frames, lead-roof and dark render complete the monochromatic palette, allowing the richness of the redsandstone villa to retain
a presence in the landscape.
