Location: Bowdon, Greater Manchester
Bracklyn is a large Victorian house located in the heart of Bowdon. The client brief was to remodel and extend the ground floor of the property to create a bright, modern family space that opened up to the large rear garden and to improve the overall connection to the outside.
Our proposal was to create a contemporary grey-brick addition at the back of the house that sits in contrast to the original Victorian red brick. We developed an L-shaped plan to allow for south facing side glazing in order to maximise the natural light. The internal space was reconfigured to provide an open-plan, kitchen, dining and living area with sliding doors providing access out to a new decked terraced and a timber-clad feature window seat that overlooks the garden. The design wraps the extension around the side to create space for a much-needed boot room, utility room, WC and storage area.
