The new extension is conceived as a simple single storey linear block of bedrooms to the rear of the house and new shared accommodation to the side. All of which is enveloped by a large low pitch zinc roof.

The simple clean lines of frameless glass and a natural stone faced base mediate between old and new constructions as the building is approached from Albert Drive.
