Innovative Extension, Winchester

Frameless Glass Window Seat

Snug Projects have just finished this contemporary extension to a house in the Winchester Conservation Area. The clients are very pleased and so are we. The brief set us the challenge of designing a two storey extension at the rear of the property with views of the trees at the front of the house. Our solution peels the bedroom wall away from the existing gable, opening up a slot of glass with views to the front. This shift in geometry brings the added benefit of increased space in the bedroom. We then eek out alittle more view and a little more space through an innovative frameless glass window seat that allows long distance views across the city, without allowing overlooking of the neighbour, a key planning constriant. This is a good example of Snug's approach to creating opportunity out of constraint. Well done to the project architect, Simon Broomfield, for another great scheme.
