Our client in Gartcosh invited several architects to bid for this fantastic project. Between two choices of architects. Glasgow based architects Allison Architecture were picked.
We were asked to replace an existing conservatory with a high specification flat roof house extension in Gartcosh near Glasgow.
We used western red cedar timber cladding and Z-clad sandstone random rubble course natural stone to give a real tactile feel to the external walls which would create a warm and textured backdrop to the new patio space.
Velfac windows kept frame widths to an absolute minimum to maximise daylight. Schuco bi fold doors and a pyramid roof light also helped to maximise the feeling of natural light within the space.
The high quality luxurious finish was continued internally with solid oak flooring, skirtings and fascias. The fireplace was also faced in stone to give the feeling that the hearth was one large stone faced element which stands alone with glazing either side.
The result is a beautifully warm space which captures a rustic Scottish feel with a contemporary twist.
The clients are yet to agree on the hanging of a claymore on the stone wall next to the fire.
