Contemporary domestic extension completed in Kelvindale

ellson | buchanan architects have successfully completed a contemporary domestic extension at 22 Hertford Avenue, Kelvindale. Following initial client brief, the design focuses on the following key aspects;

• Connection of social spaces within the home
• Connection to garden
• Introducing a contemporary interior and exterior to the property whilst respecting the existing building fabric and period features

By using a limited palette of durable and high quality materials, the extension creates a successful modern addition to this 1930’s built dwelling. The use of zinc standing seam roof provides a naturally pleasing aesthetic when viewed from the upper floor which will eventually weather to a matte grey over time, complimenting the existing slate roof. The use of a crisp white render, allows a sharp, contemporary aesthetic to the new extension directly contrasting the dry dash finish of the existing property, with the white glazed brick providing a robust highlight as a plinth. The use of high performance, full height glazing was promoted to maximise natural daylight within the extension, with sleek powder coated metal frames, specified to enhance the crisp lines and detailing of the extension.

Coupled with the client’s desire to create a high end modern interior with a bespoke kitchen and good quality materials, fittings and furnishing specified throughout, the outcome has resulted in a simple yet elegant space.
