British architecture studio CAN, have designed a contemporary rear extension to open the back of this Victorian terrace house to the garden.

Before the extension, the rear of the home was dark and crowded, with only a single side door connecting the interior to the garden.

The new floor plan shows how the architects aimed to create a large family space with new kitchen/diner, and bring light into the back of the north facing rear of the house.

The new extension features a glazed roof that brings in light, while the floor throughout the rear of the house was lowered to provide additional head height and a consistent level with the new patio.

A large pivoting door allows unobstructed views of the garden, visually extending the space, and providing an easy way to access the yard.

The bright blue and white striped facade is softened by a full wall pink curtain, bringing interest to the space and providing privacy when needed.

Inside, the material palette has been kept minimal with whitewashed Douglas Fir joinery and a seamless resin floor.

The use of Douglas fir continues for the structural fins and window reveals, while a plant shelf runs the length of the extension and takes advantage of the light from the windows.
