Pastures Hill Derby Home Extension
Pastures Hill, Derby
Swain Architecture are very proud to have welcomed this client to our practice. Having worked with the family when our Founding Director, Elizabeth Rhodes, worked at a previous practice. Having transformed the original modest bungalow into a family home, this latest project required the addition of a dormer extension on the first floor. The family’s needs had changed, and the growing family wanted more space.
By adding a stylish dormer, the family home now has five double bedrooms. With the addition of the flat roof, picture windows have been added that frame the green view. The change from Velux windows has also made more usable space within the house.
Small Interventions, Huge Transformation
Although modest in size this extension improves the space planning throughout the whole building. Every room now feels uncompromised and the home works is a balanced, large family home.
Our project has been featured in Real Homes Magazine for its innovative use of fibre cement cladding (by Equitone). The material we used here is both cost effective and great at making the building energy efficient.
What did the clients think?
“The design of our extension with long windows and the frameless glass balustrade means the view to the outside over the garden and golf course is not only always visible but it is also uninterrupted.”
