Our client approached us recently after purchasing this semi-detached Victorian property within the Newlands Conservation Area of Glasgow Their brief was to undertake an entire refurbishment of the existing 2 storey property, a new loft conversion within the existing roof space, and demolish the existing tired rear kitchen / utility extension, and replace it with an enlarged light and airy modern rear extension to accommodate a state of the art kitchen and family room, opening up to the rear garden, blurring the distinctions between interior and exterior.

Major alterations to the historic roof structure allowed for a new stair and large guest suite within a new open plan roof space. Large new structural openings were formed within the existing rear wall to facilitate a free flowing open plan interior to a very highly specified rear extension with vast areas of operable glass walls which opened up to allow the garden into the new Family Room. A complex cantilevered steel structure allowed for the glazed doors to slide into hidden pockets, breaking down the boundary between interior and exterior and providing a very light and airy space for modern family living.
