32 Reid Road

32 Reid Road is a beautiful large semi detached home with a garden and studio garden.

Project Overview

The brief was to connect, both physically and visually, the large semi-detached existing home with the garden and provide a high-quality kitchen, dining, and family space, within the existing house and a single storey extension. The studio garden is a vis of the extension but in a thin profile timber cladding which seamlessly wraps the rest of the garden. Using high end materials and careful detailing the quality of the finished project has prevailed. The extension is unashamedly modern and bold with huge sliding doors and chrome coated fin columns. A large slit rooflight allows for natural light to penetrate the existing house and the open plan helps create an airy space.

We completed the civil and structural design for this project to help develop the architects vision into a reality, designing a lightweight steel frame to achieve the open plan living aspiration. The centrepiece of the project is a modern, contemporary, glass extension that creates a seamless link between the kitchen, living room and the garden. It was great to see our work featured on Inside Out Homes and to hear the comments of both our client and the experts from the show who assessed this project.
