Push House is an internal reconfiguration and extension project by ADS in Catherine de Barnes, Solihull.
The project brief was to sensitively update and produce ‘sunny spaces’ in a 1960’s semi with a north facing garden. Our proposal includes a single storey rear extension, total internal reconfiguration; including revised Bathroom layouts, new downstairs WC and new Kitchen/day room, a new porch and simple landscaping scheme with an outdoor BBQ area.
Inspired by the simple single storey forms that address the street to create integrated garages, our scheme pushes a single storey form out towards the rear boundary. This reduces the amount of shadow that is cast on the patio by the main house and also gives an opportunity to bring daylight deep into the plan from above (something we love doing).
