Coffey Architects for private client
Contract value: Undisclosed
The modest side extension is the mainstay of small inner city architecture practices, particularly in London. This one marks the culmination of a series which redefines the genre: the architect has set up a service that allows clients to buy one direct.
Modern Side Extension is a great example of building out a very simple idea. It is a project about solid and void with two large glazed elements defining the space: a long linear strip rooflight giving a view to the sky and glazing that opens up the rear of the property to the garden. The brick infill to the extension supports the slightly projecting first floor of the house.
