#278 Wentworth Road
Open plan kitchen / living / play space
This extension on Wentworth Road, Harborne provides a family space with strong links to the rear garden whilst juxtaposing the Victorian architecture of the house.
The contemporary extension replaced an uninspiring 1960s brick extension which the clients referred to as "a crime scene"! It is designed to blur the boundaries between the interior spaces of the house and itself, and between the inside and the outside. Folding/sliding doors open up to connect to the external space which is defined by an angled perimeter wall. Timber glulam frames form the principal structure providing a contemporary aesthetic with some resonance to the existing building.
