For a middle-aged couple I was commissioned to design an extension which would facilitate their needs through life. At the moment they want to travel the world with a camper van. They might sell the house in the future or they might stay there for the rest of their lives. The extension to their original house facilitates these choices in life since it can be put in different configurations. The standard layout consists of an enlargement of the living room which through its large windows connects the interior to their beloved garden. A hallway which shows as a separate volume connects the living room to a garage with a work shed attached. In case the couple want to sell the house this garage and shed is designed to easily be transformed into a studio or little practice with a small bathroom. If the couple decides to stay and grow old here they can use the garage and shed as their bedroom so they don’t need to climb stairs in their old days.
