House Extension 46 Station Road, South Queensferry
This semi-detached house in South Queensferry was too small to accommodate the client's young family, they took the opportunity to upgrade the existing house and to build a wrap-around extension on the ground floor. The new space incorporates a home office at the front of the house, as well as a shower and utility room. The existing kitchen was cramped and not well connected to the existing living space. The new extension incorporates the kitchen into an L shaped, open plan living / dining space. The original living space is now a separate room.
Because the original house was built on a slope, the rear garden is several steps higher than the ground floor. Previously this change in level was negotiated by external steps, but the new open-plan room has two steps running the full width of the space, allowing one to walk directly out to the garden on the same level. The internal steps also neatly divide the open-plan space between living and dining.
The full height and width glazing provides a stunning backdrop to family life and the large overhang beyond the glazing provides an intermediate zone, where the family can enjoy outdoor life on those less than perfect Scottish Summer days. It also provides shade from excessive glare and gives a strong formal proportion to the rear elevation.
