Glass Addition Giving Contemporary Look to Old House Exterior and Interior Design

old house extension with glass addition in contemporary style


Old house exterior design was dramatically transformed by a spacious and beautiful glass addition, turning a 50s style home into modern, bright and comfortable. The Medic’s House redesign project is an extension to an old three-bedroom home in Hampshire, United Kingdom, envisioned by architects of AR Design Studio,

The residence needed extra living spaces with the arrival of a baby. The large addition is created in natural wood and elegant charcoal gray color shades which perfectly match existing parts of old house exterior design and add a contemporary look to the renovated home.

The modern house exterior features two boxes on two levels. The ground level glass addition has a full height glazed opening elevation to the garden, enhancing contemporary kitchen design and dining room with gorgeous views. A timber clad beautify another box with sleeping spaces which is perched above it providing the additional bedrooms with nice views also.
