Originally, there stood a garage, which was too small for modern day vehicles and prevented natural light from entering the front of the property.
After demolition of the original structure, new footings were excavated & poured allowing for a larger footprint and making way for the new link which would connect both old and new. BEA “Old Chester” brickwork was used with a recessed mortar joint to give the exterior depth and character, as opposed to more traditional brickwork methods. We used a lime & white cement mortar with a dash of sharp sand to complement its seaside positioning.
Internally, an industrial theme can be seen throughout, in the exposed brick & block finish, black conduit to run services and exposed ceilings joists. Floor to ceiling matte black slim-line glazing allows for natural light to pour inside, this is enhanced even further with a 2000 x 1000mm triple glazed roof light within the link. Handmade joinery items can be seen internally which form the window & door openings maintaining clean lines and framing your views externally.
A modern ‘warm roof’ structure was installed, giving superior energy efficiency as opposed to the traditional ‘cold roof’. This particular insulation is designed off site and is delivered with a gradual slope built into it and therefore must be installed according to drawings. All glazing is ultra low profile with less than 30mm of visible frame powder coated in matte black.
Our customer was delighted with the end result as was the architect. We received
