When exploring the possibility of converting the garage, it soon became clear that it was not structurally sound and that the most economical design solution would be to remove the garage and build a single-storey annexe, which could be connected to the main house via a lobby area.
The new extension includes a bedroom/living area with an ensuite wetroom and a small lobby that links the newbuild to the main house. The doors are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair and the room has its own entrance with level access.
Natural light was provided by installing two sets of double french doors, as well as Velux rooflights in the vaulted ceiling.
A raised patio linking the main house and the extension was constructed, which allows the extended family to spend time together.
By demolishing the existing garage, we were able to increase the footprint of the living space and design a bespoke building around the client’s needs. The client is able to live independently but with the added confidence of the accommodation being closely connected to the main house, which means that care and companionship are close by.
