Tan Yr Esgair  |  House Extension & Renovation

Ruthin, Denbighshire, 2021

The original property was a decent sized family house, but had unattractive pebble-dash render and a layout did not suit the client's needs. We removed the existing staircase to create more space in the house and replaced it with an external stair core, that creates access to the new attic conversion. A cantilevered balcony leads out from the stair core, also serves as a canopy over the main entrance. Black steel, timber cladding and render give the house a sharp modern aesthetic. Wood fibre insulation wraps around the existing walls, with bead insulation blown into the cavity, to improve its thermal performance. The ground floor was infilled with glass rock and underfloor heating is fed by an air-source heat pump. The MVHR maintains a healthy air quality and wicks away moisture from the bathrooms and kitchen. Lightweight flexible solar modules are barely visible on the standing seam roof.
