Zinc House

This project is for a 50m2 extension to the rear of a mid twentieth century house on the edge of the Chilterns. The design is undeniably contemporary and clearly identified the old and new parts of the building. The client wanted a very simple open plan space that made the most of the long views over the vale with large sliding doors and roof lights to bring light into the depth of the house. The volume is clad in standing seamed zinc so that it recedes into the landscape when viewed from the surrounding AONB.
