Cardigan Bay

This steel-framed extension to a bungalow creates an open plan living/ kitchen/ dining area of 90m2. A completely glazed west façade with a zinc roof cantilevered over the 1st floor balcony overlooks the sea. Eliminating down-standing beams or visible supporting columns, the design re-uses the original trusses, combined as girders to support the new first floor. Solar collectors contribute to both hot water and under-floor heating and the roof and balcony over-hangs prevent summer overheating. Locally sourced Western Red Cedar, galvanized steel, pre-weathered zinc and anodised aluminium, were chosen for durability and minimal maintenance in the coastal environment.
