Aberdeen Extension

A six metre opening was formed in an existing 1970’s detached house providing a framed view to the landscaped gardens.

A simple exposed concrete frame portico punches its way into the garden matching the width of the slot in the existing wall. Minimum visual interruption between internal space and the gardens was achieved with large glazed aluminium screens finished in a receding dark grey.

Externally the portico sits forward from the building with a lead recessed margin accommodating a wide gutter freeing the extension from the architectural language of the house.
