Glisson Road

 

Private House

Cambridge

 

 

Located within the Glisson Road Conservation Area, in a private garden on the eastern edge of Cambridge University's Fenner's Cricket Grounds, the proposal replaces a lean-to conservatory and derelict garage with a new lightweight timber structure.

 

Conceived as an outbuilding and extension to a semi-detached Victorian house, the project is unified by a single mono-pitched roof, forming a series of interstitial outdoor spaces. The elongated plan takes full advantage of the deep plot, creating a link between house and garden.

 

The timber frame building will add a new dining space, a utility room and an independently accessed garden play room towards the rear. These interior spaces are connected by an open pergola, defining a passage way between the private garden and a yard shared with the neighbours.

 

Planning approval was granted in July 2017.
