31 Rowallan Gardens
Situated in the middle of a long Victorian terrace in Glasgow’s West End, Rowallan Gardens is a well proportioned, family house. The rear of the building faces SW and original outhouses had previously been replaced with a conservatory. This together with a narrow, outrigger kitchen was providing the residents with their primary, daily, living space: a little cramped with the conservatory suffering from seasonal temperature extremes.
Arka’s brief was to remove the conservatory and re-invent the entire rear of the house to enable sitting, eating and cooking in the same space whilst enjoying the garden and westerly evening aspect.
