The project involves the creation of a new kitchen, larder, boot room and family room to the side and rear of a large semi-detached Arts and Craft house in the centre of Cambridge. The main ‘pavilion’, the family room, to the rear, is separated from the main house by a glazed corridor. It is trapezoidal in plan form as it turns itself towards, we have been told, possibly the largest tree in any private garden in Cambridge. The structure is clad in gold zinc, acting as rain screen cladding which will protect the building from the bombardment of beech nuts from the tree and protect the gutters and downpipes from filling up with leaves. The elevation which addresses the garden and which faces directly South has large sliding glass doors.
