A side and rear extension to a Victorian property using a combination of glulam and reinforced concrete.
A reinforced concrete frame has been used with high-quality exposed concrete as an architectural feature both internally and externally. Instead of traditional steel beams, structural support for the extension and upper storeys is provided by a series of deep flitch beams placed perpendicular to the wall above.
An innovative structural design used glulam beams as both the temporary and permanent works to support the outrigger wall. A skylight allows ample daylight into the new kitchen and dining space.
Formed with four offset columns, the roof slab cantilevers in two directions and is supported by reinforced upstand beams. Thermal breaks ensure no cold bridging between the internal and external areas.
The upstairs living area has been extended through the addition of a dormer, which has been fitted with a new bathroom. Both the rear extension and dormer have a green roof.
