Hipped House
by Oliver Leech Architects

Ståle Eriksen

Oliver Leech Architects have transformed a detached house in Surrey for a young family who wanted more space to work, learn, live and play.
The works included extensive interior renovations, and a new two-storey rear extension with a large dormer window that punctuates the roofline.

The pitched, hipped-roof of the new extension was designed to replicate the form of the original house. Handmade Danish grey clay tiles have been paired with silvery Siberian larch cladding to create a muted palette of natural materials that create a clear, but sympathetic distinction between old and new.

This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
