Kintrea Munro House

Kintrea Munro House, Crosshill

Single storey rear extension to detached Category B Listed blonde sandstone villa in the Crosshill Conservation Area.

Our design approach was to create a building which co-exists harmoniously with the existing house yet has contemporary features and materials.

The low-pitch zinc-clad roof is supported on an exposed galvanised steel frame. By ensuring no structural loads are taken down through the walls, this has allowed us to introduce a bespoke, frameless clerestory glazing system which, internally, gives the impression of a floating roof. This is further emphasised by cantilevering the roof to one side.

The result is a truly spectacular light-filled room with uninterrupted views and strengthened connections to the garden.
