Grove Hill Road

This rear extension was clad in black timber, adding a striking modern addition that contrasts against the period property, whilst complimenting the neighbouring black slate roofs and existing rhythm of openings.

    Be modern – but sympatheticA black timber finish on this rear extension makes it stand out, and there’s no mistaking that it’s a new structure added to a period home. However, choosing black makes it sympathetic to the surrounding charcoal slate roofs and black guttering, creating a pleasing harmony. Staggering the back wall to mirror the shape of the original house also helps the new-build section look at home.
