This reconfiguration and extension of a 1950s developer semi in a northern suburb of Glasgow provides a new guest bedroom for elderly relatives and a utility room. A new kitchen and family room occupy a garden extension, releasing the former living room at the front of the house to become the desired bedroom, thereby refocusing the house towards the garden. Architecturally, the new timber-frame structure is seen as a garden pavilion rather than an extension, and extensive use of roof glazing and sliding glass screens captures views towards the greenery as well as maximising daylight. The floor and roof cantilever past their supports - a floating theme continued by the cladding in planks of alternating cedar and mahogany, and floor of continuous planes of beech. The structural engineer was Woolgar Hunter, qs was Reid Fletcher Associates and Main contractor was c&v Construction. The contract value was £30,733.
