Glisson Road

Located within the Glisson Road Conservation Area, in a private garden on the eastern edge of Cambridge University's Fenner's Cricket Grounds, the proposal replaces a lean-to conservatory and derelict garage with a new lightweight timber structure.


Conceived as an outbuilding and extension to a semi-detached Victorian house, the project is unified by a single mono-pitched roof, forming a series of interstitial outdoor spaces. The elongated plan takes full advantage of the deep plot, creating a link between house and landscape.


The structure will introduce additional dining space and an independently accessed garden room towards the rear. These interior spaces are connected by an open pergola, defining a passage way between the private garden and a shared yard.
