Friary Road, Bristol
This extension at Friary Road, Bristol was undertaken to form a new dining area to this converted industrial building.
The extension is bound on three sides by three metre high walls and rooflights were required in order to flood the space with natural light.

Phase 1 of the extension of this terraced house in Bristol included the addition of a room in the roof that would overlook the park to the rear of the property. The loft accommodates a family bedroom and en-suite shower room.
The next phase of the development is for a single storey extension to the rear of the property. This has been granted planning and building regulations approval and will be built in the next few months.
This may look like a fairly traditional pair of semi-detached dwellings, but their external appearance is deceiving. The scale and materials were determined by the local Planning Authority, and they were designed to fit in with the buildings that surround them.
To set them apart, these timber framed buildings include rainwater harvesting servicing the toilets, PV panels providing electricity, and exceptionally high levels of thermal and acoustic insulation.
The renewable energy technology means lower bills and the houses both received an A rating on their Energy Performance Certification.
