Sensitively crafted extensions and renovation of a detached house in a Cambridge Conservation Area.
Project Name: Cambridge Garden House
Studio Name: Cairn
Location: Cambridge, United Kingdom
Photography: Peter Landers
The new extension allows the ground floor to feel connected to the garden, while still complimenting the solid brick construction of the original building.
Curved brick piers create rhythm and relief and form deep protective window reveals. Between the piers, the family rooms are open to new patio and wonderful garden.
Internally, the ground floor is planned as an interconnected collection of rooms linked with windows and glass doors. The changes fill the house with natural light and help the family to feel they are together, even when in different rooms.
