This single storey extension was part of a larger renovation project to a period terrace house in South Parade, in Belfast.

This is a particularly popular, though often tricky, type of extension in Belfast, due to the large proportion of terraced housing in the city, where the rear yard of a terrace is built over and successfully integrated with an existing rear return, usually providing enlarged kitchen, dining and family areas, together with utility space if there is room.

In this case there was a two storey return on either side of the yard space, and we were able to insert a continuous skylight along the length of the roof, allowing natural light deep into the original rear rooms of the house. Sloping the new roof gave an extra degree of height to the new space which effectively compensated for the lower than ideal ceiling height which is a feature of most of these rear returns.
