Cornish Contemporary Glulam Extension

Location: Cornwall

Completed: 2009

Features: Contemporary glulam extension with floor to ceiling glazing and cantilevered corner.

Requirements: Unusual extension, designed by local architects to open up the house to the landscape.

An exciting choice of timber used to great effect.

The striking and unusual design complements the refurbishment of the existing house. Floor to ceiling glazing combined with a cantilevered corner allow for uninterrupted views.

Local design integrated with locally sourced sustainable timber

This striking and unusual extension was designed by Living Space Architects for a contemporary addition to an existing house in Cornwall. There was a conscious effort to use a local architect and locally sourced, sustainable materials wherever possible.

The client’s priority was to frame the beautiful surroundings while using sustainable materials to reflect their project ethos. A natural solution came in the form of the chestnut glulam timber frame, sourced locally from an FSC certified supplier.
