This Home Extension Covered In Vertical Wood Slats Includes A Picture Window Overlooking The Garden

The extension, which is clad in Canadian Douglas Fir slats, forms an L-shaped space, creating a new space which maximizes the light for the interior.

Christian Brailey Architects has designed this renovation and addition for a house in England, that transformed a studio flat into a home for an architect and landscape designer duo, Christian Brailey and Faye Johnson.

The extension was entirely prefabricated in workshop conditions by a team of highly skilled carpenters in Devon.

The extension structure, along with all the doors and windows, was then disassembled, transported, craned in, and built on-site within a matter of days.
