Barclay Cottages

Brighton, near Preston Park

Private Residential | Rear Extension

Working as Brighton Architects we have a varied portfolio of private residential projects. Barclay Cottages, now granted planning permission, is an excellent addition to this portfolio.

It’s a small project with a big heart. The addition of an extension with a green sedum roof and the creation of a triple height space over a relocated stair has totally changed this small house.

Creation of a triple space height

On entry the overriding feeling is one of a spacious and light filled interior. A simple Velux rooflight floods the stair void with natural light. The new stair is elegant and sculptural, formed in oak with open risers and a glass balustrade to bounce light around. Views from the first floor are much improved with the addition of the Sedum roof, providing an increased sense of a garden space to this small plot.

No project too small for Shape Architecture

Shape Architecture constantly takes on small residential projects and we very much enjoy how a few small changes can have a dramatic effect. If you have a similar project in mind please feel free to contact us to discuss your plans.
