The domestic clients for this small project required more storage space for keeping their gardening equipment.  Their existing attractive brick garage required urgent repair, and extending it during this necessary process appeared to be the logical solution.  The extension is oak-framed with red cedar cladding.  A copper-lined roofing fascia completes the elevation.

The principle for the design of the exterior aesthetics was to produce an extension that would settle into the beautiful garden, while gently asserting its future.  In two more years, the timber cladding will fade to a silvery colour, and the copper will turn to a dark brown, and eventually to green.
