Project: Extensive refurbishment and extension to a mid terrace property in Trooper's Hill, Bristol
This angled extension has been designed to maximise views out to the garden and also reduce the impact to the neighbouring home. The new space is flooded with light from the large rooflights overhead and near full width sliding / folding window on the rear elevation. When opened up, a large bench seat inside provides a welcomed space to sit regardless of the weather. Elsewhere a new utility and WC has been added on the ground floor, the family bathroom refitted and general upgrading completed.
Externally the extension has been wrapped in a charred timber cladding. Shou Sugi Ban, is a method of charring timber to create an inherent protection layer on the surface. The black offers a sharp contrast to the greenery of the garden but will mellow over time to a soft grey. Work remains to be completed on the external landscaping which is scheduled for next year once the clients consider how best to lay out the space.
We look forward to sharing more photos of the project once the work to the landscaping has been completed.
