St Andrew's Road, Exmouth, Devon

We loved working up the designs on this little single storey rear extension project for a delightful client and her busy young family in a terraced house near the beach in Exmouth. The brief was to open up a dark,  tight mid terraced house plan by maximising light and space and extending the living space into the rear courtyard for a busy family for flexible living.


With clever structural engineering the floors above were propped up with steelwork which lent itself to a completely open plan layout which spanned across the entire width of the terraced house. New rooflights allowed daylight and solar gain to flood in at key times of the day into the heart of the original dark terraced plan. Bi-fold doors slide and fold apart to the rear opening up a new courtyard which allows the  the garden to become part of the spatious open plan living.


A new contemporary layout allows the busy family life to flow around each other as they go about their individual activities in everyday life. The family are delighted with the new brightly lit special arrangement and even managed to fit 80 people in the space at a recent birthday party!
