Testwood Cottage is one half of a semi-detached property deep in the Wiltshire countryside. The unashamedly contemporary single-storey flat roofed extension has brought it completely up-to-date. In addition, it has created space within the existing building for today’s essentials such as a utility room and ground floor toilet. The extension itself provides an open-plan ‘family room’ (kitchen / dining / living space).
A key feature, as these photographs show, is the south facing glazed elevation with brise soleil (solar shading) and a large sliding door opening onto the patio and garden.
