83 South Broomage Avenue


Arka was contacted by the owners of a handsome semi-detached Victorian property to explore options to consolidate a plethora of piecemeal historic rear extensions in order to provide additional family living space whilst reinventing the house’s prominent rear and side elevations. The solution involved replacement of an existing utility room, an additional extension and glazing elements to provide a separate dining area.

Substantial structural alterations were required to open up the heart of the house allowing better dialogue and dramatic interplay between the new spaces. A textural palette of Siberian larch, powder coated aluminium and tactile black brick was used externally to provide both a coherence to these new interventions and balanced contrast with the existing building.
