Domestic Extension, Aberdeen
This project in Aberdeen’s West End was to remove a ubiquitous granite & brick coal shed and replace with an enlarged kitchen & family space.
Being a terraced property with strict planning policy restrictions, our challenge was to deliver an extension profile that would not adversely affect the neighbours. Following extensive discussions with Aberdeen City Council we agreed on an extension roof profile which minimised its impact but which still delivered on the key aspects of our client’s brief, which was to maximise space, daylight and focus views towards the garden.
The extension contains a reasonably high-end feel, with underfloor heating and high quality finishes including grey granite side walls, engineered timber flooring and market-leading aluminium-clad timber window & door installation and yet was delivered to an affordable budget.
This project is a key example of how tight design constraints can yield very creative solutions.
