Triptych House brings narrative to contemporary extension and refurbishment

Triptych House brings narrative to contemporary extension and refurbishment

12 Feb 2020 News

This Grade II Listed dwelling in Hampshire, UK combines a modern extension with extensive internal renovation. The concept for the renovation is a journey through three primary spaces of the house: master suite, kitchen/diner and billiards room.

Paul Cashin Architects explain that these spaces are treated as a triptych of artwork: three separate elements intended to be read and understood as a whole.

We begin the triptych in the master bedroom where an original window was discovered in the attic space above. This lead to the inclusion of a vaulted ceiling that exposes large timber trusses to the interior space. These new high ceilings and timber trusses are later echoed in the billiards room.

The contemporary extension features a contrast between lower ceiling, textured walls and dark furnishing. While the other rooms in the property are inherently inward looking, here, open views are provided outward to the garden. This gives the space a unique quality as compared to other spaces.
