This was a slow burning project for EDable which progressed in a number of stages over several years. Whilst the existing property was substantial, spatially it made for a very long thin house with lots of corridor-like spaces. A series of carefully considered additions inside and outside the courtyard allowed the spaces to breath and created a generous family room at the heart. Structurally the project was challenging as ceiling heights were critical and there were many existing levels to juggle, along with a substantial cantilever for the open glazed corner. The client was involved in all the detailing, including ensuring the large sliding doors disappeared into pockets within the building so the whole extension could be opened up.
