Ex-Chipper-eld designer Maurice Shapero has unveiled his plans for an extension to the rear of a Victorian semidetached house in Whalley Range, Manchester. The scheme will provide around 32m 2 of extra space to the home.

According to Shapero, the client wanted a contemporary feel to provide a contrast to the Victorian front of the house. The client has restored the facade of the house with stainedglass windows and sand-blasted stonework. The rear, says Shapero, will provide an antithesis to this, using concrete and glass. The walls will 'act like blinkers, internalising the space' but will also capture morning and evening sunlight.

The project, valued at around £150,000, is about to be submitted for planning with work scheduled to begin on site in three months time.
