12 Sunderland close is an existing dwelling build in the 1970's and is typical of its time. Like many dwellings of this period t suffers from smaller distinct rooms rather than an open plan feel that contemporary living often requires. The solution as is often the case is a single storey rear extension. In this project we sought to create a garden room that was not your typical lean too extension. The new space is a garden pavilion with over sized eaves complete with hidden gutter and downpipe sleeved with the structural steel column.
The feature roof is complimented with charred timber cladding facade. The technique known as Shou-Sugi-Ban is a traditional Japanese technique that seals the wood and ensures it does not need any further maintenance. It also protects it from insects and any fungal and algae growth.
