Studio Prototype - Dutch Home Extension

Dutch firm Studio Prototype have designed this extension to a home in Duiven. The new structure echoing the proportions of the old, yet slightly misaligned to differentiate between the two:

"By shifting the new volume slightly from the existing dwelling, a subtle connection is established between both with special views."

The cladding utilises narrow diagonal stained western-red cedar - the colour and textural qualities going nicely with the old red brick.

Grey profiled steel roofing and an inset glass entrance / porch area create a tidy design resolution.
