Milltown


A detached 1980s house is reconfigured and extended to create bright family spaces. A striking zinc butterfly roof conceals a long clerestory window and a large rooflight, flooding the space with light throughout the day from morning to evening.

Residential Extension: 30m2, Refurbishment: 45m2

Model
New spaces are defined beneath a new butterfly roof structure. A large rooflight floods the kitchen wall with sunlight, while the dining area is bathed in warm Southerly light through a clerestory window, allowing inhabitants to enjoy the movements of the sun throughout the day

Large glazed doors allow the new living spaces to overflow into the garden. The heavy roof structure provides a shallow overhang – sheltering and protecting from the elements. This transforms and bends down to form a feature rainwater downpipe.
