A railway water tower inspired extension to the former Rowlands Gill Station House. Winner of the LABC Northern Best Extension Award 2016 and shortlisted for the national 2016 awards in London The station master’s house was the only remaining building at the former Rowlands Gill Station. The owners were fast outgrowing the house, so we designed a three storey extension & remodel inspired by the galvanised steel / brick water tower that used to supply steam trains at the station, hence the split-level, tower-like, zinc, brick and glass extension with 3 storey curtain wall overlooking the National Trust gardens of Gibside. The clients were delighted with the finished result as they now have a light-filled, house with open-plan family rooms and plenty of bedrooms for their four boys.
