House on the South Coast

It sounds rather obvious to say that Garden extensions are all about the garden, but too often they seem to become bulky extensions of the house into the garden. The thought process behind this one was to float the house out over the garden and use delicate metal and glass screens to wrap the internal space below. A slight articulation of the screen creates a sheltered outdoor sitting area for reading a book while those summer showers stop work on the vegetable patch.
