Case Study #3: Studio Baad

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.
