Case Study #3: Studio Baad
Manchester Road, Wilmslow by Studio Baad
Start on site date
Estimated completion date
Gross internal floor area
This 1930s detached house had already been extended over both floors, creating a deep plan and a dimly lit space at its centre.
We extended the property with an open-plan kitchen and new garden room that opens directly out on to a split-level, south-facing terrace which projects on the property’s mature garden.
The extension has floor-to-ceiling sliding-and-folding doors to the south and west elevations. These are shaded by a deep wrap-around wooden overhang, contiguous with the timber deck of the terrace.
The project incorporates the former garage. It now houses a guest bedroom and a relocated utility room. The existing pitched roof has been retained and separated from the adjacent extension by a glazed slot.
To form a sheltered side-entrance to the property, the garage building was extended
to the east.
