The Brief

Situated within a private, gated community, our clients came to us with the dream of creating a contemporary addition to their beautiful home by means of a single storey extension to provide a luxurious games and entertainment space suitable for their unique lifestyle. Being a period home, it was not done justice by it’s small rooms and disconnected spaces, something which was a key factor to consider throughout the design process.

With many influencing ideas, such as the incorporation of a themed bar, antique juke box, full sized pool table and a desire for a truly unique lighting display, Extension Architecture lept at the opportunity to create the space of their dreams.

Our Solution

Our client had a strong opinion of creative direction right from the beginning, but here at Extension Architecture, we provided an alternative that appealed hugely to our client and we got to work.

A glazed connection between the spaces enables light to flood into both the new space and the reconfigured downstairs layout, creating a clear distinguishment between the new and the old. Bold lighting accompanies this, producing a stand-out addition with a fun and flexible character that contrasted the period home, creating the perfect balance of modern and traditional. A luxurious, neutral palette of greys and white was chosen throughout the space to ensure continuity between the spaces during the day, however, everything can be transformed at the flick of a switch, making the perfect space for evening entertainment. A new kitchen and downstairs reconfigurations helped to maximise the space, creating a functional unit suitable for modern day living without losing any of the original character of the home.

The lighting and bespoke elements continue through to the outdoors, where our talented landscape designers saw the potential to create a beautiful indoor-outdoor space, perfect for summer nights of laughter.

Summary of Works

With a complete and well-structured design process, we were able to unlock the property’s huge potential and create something which far exceeded our client’s expectations- a unique project with a hidden twist. Internal reconfigurations, including a new kitchen, complete the space.
