Garden room extension

After completion, WDA added a contemporary garden room extension to the house. This minimalist room seamlessly links outside with inside, providing a spacious outdoor dining area whilst also protecting occupants from the weather. The structure utilises state-of-the-art rotating roof louvres that open up the room to the outside allowing ventilation in the summer, whilst integrated blinds provide solar shading on the south facing glass walls.
