Timber and zinc clad extension, South Lanarkshire
The open aspect to the rear of the house meant that we were able to design an almost completely glass gable. This offers views from the new master bedroom suite on the first floor, and the new kitchen and dining areas on the ground floor.
A stepped lower ground floor makes the most of the existing garden slope and allows uninterrupted views of the hills from the kitchen, over the heads of those sitting at the dining table. The high level panaroma window frames the view beautifully.
The roof and upper ground floor are clad in VM Zinc with the ground floor walls clad in the more tactile Japanese scorched larch. High quality triple glazed, alu clad windows mean the property is very low maintenance and very well insulated.
We would love to wake up to that view every morning.
