taA have applied for planning permission for a contemporary extension to a terraced house in Nottingham. The existing garden is relatively small and access down the side of the extension needed to be maintained. To maximise external space the proposed extension has sliding screens turning the dining area into the patio, truely bringing the outside in. The tiny existing kitchen is out of proportion with the rest of the accommodation in the house. The proposed extension adds a kitchen diner and allows the existing dining room to be turned into a living area adjoining the kitchen. The short animation shows how the design maximises the limited available space.
