Lammas is an extension and reconfiguration of a detached 1960s house to provide additional accommodation and improved spatial configuration. The new extension reads as an extrusion of the original building by using similar materials but is offset gently to add visual interest and maximise daylight levels. The new extension's position as a separate element is emphasised by a glazed link whose roof sits just below the eaves of the original house and the extension to create a visible and interesting break in the roofline. Within the link, a playful use of materials blurs the boundaries between inside and outside.
