Looking to add extra rooms onto your home, but don’t want to sacrifice your garden space? Take inspiration from this plan for a revamped home designed by architect Gina Walker of Sphere Design & Architecture. “We used the entire width of the site as the client did not want us to extend the front and infringe on her garden,” explains Gina, who also incorporated numerous eco-friendly principles into the design. This includes using as much of the existing structure as possible as this is the best approach to recycling and is ultimately a greener design solution.
