Manipulate your daylightDaylight comes into many of the examples illustrated here in various ways, but it deserves a section to itself as it is so important. Daylight is the most wonderful magnifier of interior space, but when it is used in blanket form rather insensitively it can lose its magic. Here, a slot of daylight separates the original back wall of this house from the solid roof of the extension, making the whole construction feel more lightweight and delicate, as well as bringing daylight in to what would otherwise be a dark zone within the house.Highlighting specific areas, such as washing daylight down over a stairwell from above or creating a ‘pool’ of daylight over a dining table or kitchen island, can be tremendously effective.

Additions to existing structures often compromise the amount of daylight the original building receives. Not here, though. The skylight ensures that the existing home borrows daylight at its perimeter.

Glass between house and extension. Why was this done

Go for visual separation. When adding to or altering a building, creating a clear visual separation between the new and existing elements of the building can really enhance the sense of extra space. In this home, the extension is held away — meaning it’s visually separated — from the original back wall of the house. The glass gap in the ceiling is also a visual highlight, doubling the effect. This really creates the sense that you’re passing from one space into another, and not just looking across a single unified area. The room in this example is a generous size already, but in a much smaller house — say, a Victorian terrace house — visually separating the extension in a similar way could be even more dramatic.
