Our clients in Stewarton Drive asked us to create a design for a single storey extension to a family home in Cambuslang comprising of a large open plan kitchen / dining area with a new Utility Room.
Planning Permission and the Building Warrant have now been passed and tenders have now gone out for this 50sqm house extension in the Stewarton Drive area of Cambuslang where we have also been asked to proceed as managing architects for the construction process.
The concept behind the design
was to create a large open plan space with large corner bifold windows to open out into the garden area. The New rear Entrance to the property will have function as a cloakroom area with plenty of room for coats and wellies and also the utility room opposite.
We have gone for a traditional slate roof to tie in with the existing house design a
long with wet dab render and glazed brick walls along with a wall of smooth faced red brick to the side of the Utility/Cloakroom area which will echo the traditional red brick to the garden walls and Victorian garage.
We are delighted to announce the completion of our Cambuslang extension project.
This house extension project is situated in Cambuslang to the South East of Glasgow. We were asked to provide full architectural services from concept design, Planning Application, Building Warrant Application then through to full project management.
We used the area of the existing extension to create a new kitchen area. The floor was dug up in this area to allow a newly insulated and underfloor heated floor to be formed.
We then formed a large opening in the outside wall to open out onto a new large dining space. Frameless Glazing looking out to the garden and large skylights allow large amount so of daylight in to the space and give a seamless feel between outside and in.
The Dining Area and Entrance hall are subdivided by a large sculptural polished concrete form which also acts as the hearth for the woodburning stove and helps to reflect heat back in to the space.
At Cambuslang the clients are seeking to replace their existing kitchen extension with a large open plan kitchen and dining area which maximises daylight and offers a closer relationship with the garden.
The new rear vestibule is housed within an angled polished concrete form which will act as hearth for a wood burning stove on the opposite side.
Scottish Larch cladding and a profiled zinc roof make up the external fabric of the building.
South Lanarkshire Planning Department allowed the Planning Application process to be turned around in under six weeks with one single condition that the zinc tone for he roofing would tie in with the existing welsh slate colour.
The interior of the building extension is based on an open plan layout. We are retaining large portions of existing painted brickwork which will separate the kithen form dining area.
The use separation within the space is denoted only by the shape of the roof profile above. This is intended to improve the feeling of flow between the spaces while subtley denoting spatial separation above. As we plan to carry through the same floor material to the garden space the same condition will occur as the user goes from inside space to the external.
Although the client was looking for Cambuslang architects, Glasgow architects, Allison Architecture came to their attention and were quickly appointed to design this single storey extension design in Cambuslang.
What is it? and, what is it made of?
Firstly, It is a separating device between the vestibule space and the main living space. Secondly, it is a fireback for the log burning stove and thirdly, it is an alcove with an integrated bench for our clients to sit down and pull off those muddy wellies.
We are looking to have the whole component specially precast in concrete with a polished finish both internally and externally and enbedded into it will be a double glazed fixed skylight.
It is a tricky business, designing a single object that is part inside and part out. We have had to design the object as two separate panels which sandwich a full fill of insulation. Internal concrete never touche the external stuff as this would cause what’s called a thermal bridge, and that’s not a good thing.
