Extending without an extension_ 2014

Very often, it makes much more sense not to extend a house, but instead make better use of the space that is already there. This project follows this approach, reconfiguring what was formerly on under-used bathroom, into a new garden facing family room. Working within the existing foot print, we added a new pop-out to the family room to provide a seating bench on one side and a sense of space and light into the new room. By avoiding spending any money on foundations, we were instead able to invest in materials, with iroko clodding on the pop out box also continuing to iroko clod planted boxes in the garden. The project has completely transformed the way the house and garden is used, making it feel twice as big (when in fact it is exactly the some size as before.)
