House Extension Main Street, Scothern

This extension to a house in the centre of Scothern provides a contemporary solution to the challenge of a restricted site with neighbouring properties close by.  Computer modelling and sunpath analysis assisted in finalising the massing and design of the extension through negotiation with neighbours and client.  The design balances the new cubic mass against the original steeply pitched low-eaved volume.  Timber frame construction for the extension, along with high levels of insulation and natural daylight, reduces embodied energy and consumption of use.
