1 THEY ACHIEVE HAR­MONY if your plot and house aren’t in align­ment, con­sider ro­tat­ing the plan so it lines up with the ex­ter­nal space. this will help link the new in­ter­nal plan to the out­door space.

2 THEY NEED CARE­FUL PLAN­NING Bring­ing two ge­ome­tries to­gether needs care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion and should be planned so as not to cre­ate ‘dead

space’ at the junc­tion. Fur­ni­ture choice and space plan­ning should be re­flected in the ini­tial draw­ing.

3 CEIL­INGS ARE key Con­sider de­sign­ing the roof and ceil­ing so as to cre­ate an im­pact on the fin­ished spa­ces. this will ac­cen­tu­ate the change of an­gle and give a pur­pose­ful look to the di­rec­tion of the ex­ten­sion.

4 MA­TE­RI­ALS make A DIF­FER­ENCE Con­sider the ma­te­ri­als you use in or­der to blend or de­fine your new space. show off the new an­gles by in­tro­duc­ing fea­ture ma­te­ri­als on the walls and floors, to dif­fer­en­ti­ate old from new.

5 IL­LU­MI­NA­TION MAT­TERS light­ing will help re­in­force the new di­rec­tion of the plan be­cause the eye is drawn to light sources and fit­tings. How lights are po­si­tioned and used is in­te­gral to the feel and flow of the space.
