Contemporary single storey extension to rear of family home located within a prestigious development in Armagh City. The client’s brief required a living space extension to the existing modest sized kitchen. The completed extension design uses a vaulted ceiling with full height glazing to the side and gable elevations to enhance the sense of space and light within the new living room. The extensive glazing to the extension also heightens the connection with the colourful and maintained garden and creates a feeling of tranquillity within the living space. The level threshold through the large glazed sliding panel to the external decking extends the new living space to the outside, which has resulted in the new extension being the main living and social space within the family home.
