Shadow House, Fishergate

Architect/Designer: Doma Architects
Client/ Developer: Owner
Builder: Carter Grice
Presented by: Roger Lee, Director, Bedern Hall Co. Ltd

…An elegant contemporary extension to an existing house – in this case a Victorian semi-D. The available area is much smaller, so the addition is on two storeys, ingeniously laid out to provide a remarkable amount of additional living space: on the ground floor a new back door, utility room, WC and home office; and on the upper floor two extra bedrooms. A second bathroom is now provided within the original house and the reorganisation of the ground floor opens the living spaces out into the garden. The bulk of the new building is clad in slate-grey fibre cement boards; the ground floor extension into the garden in charred larch laid to a stylish horizontal design – the dark colours make the new building like a shadow of the brick and stucco blocks on either side. We were particularly impressed with the way this extension responds both to the street at the front and the garden to the rear.
