Planning has been granted on this large rear and side extension to this detached property in Birtley. The original layout of the property has small individual rooms, which don’t suit the modern-day open plan living that we all strive for. Our beautifully designed modern rear extension (architect Robbie Evans lead the design team on this project) will create a large kitchen/dining space with an existing backroom turned into a snug area with log burner. To the side of the property, an existing side passage between the house and the detached garage is to become enclosed to create a large utility space with glazing that enables you to see through the property.

The extension is designed to create a modern living experience with a contemporary exterior finish. Rendered in white with simple details, clean lines and dark grey framed aluminium windows and doors create a minimalist and monochromatic feel to the design.



This new extension should massively change the way the clients live and socialise both as a family or with friends creating a home for life.

Needs and options review

 For this project we initially came up with a number of alternative layouts for this house extension. Please use the slider to see the alternative options we explored to begin with. This is how we always start any project, but showing our clients different options so they can make an informed decision.
