SIPs two-storey extension

Old Bridge Road, Iford, Christchurch

Architect: ARC     Client: Self Builder     Install Team: Carpentree 

This well designed, modern two-storey extension has been another great example of how to maximise space with the SIP’s build system. By opting for a SIP’s roof, and so eliminating the need for traditional roof trusses, the owners were able to gain valuable square meterage from the existing site. Built on a masonry ground floor, the extension comprises of three rooms, and the large windowed front will let the natural light flood in to accentuate the space. The mix of materials used highlights the adaptability of SIP’s and offers the architect and developer more flexibility and freedom in the design stage.
