This Hertfordshire house, located next to open countryside within designated green belt, was completely transformed by adding a large lateral open plan rear extension. The design worked with the existing site levels to accommodate large glass doors to the rear, allowing clear view of a beautiful existing garden and the surrounding fields.

The success of this project lies in key design details which allow the internal spaces to open out onto the level terrace and the flow of the daytime living areas which make the house perfect for entertaining. The use of large rooflights and high coffer ceilings make the rooms feel light, airy and dramatic.
