Lon Mafon, Sketty, Swansea

Scheduled for completion in 2024, this remarkable project is set to revolutionize a residence on Lon Mafon in Swansea through a meticulously designed rear extension. With a keen focus on seamlessly integrating modern aesthetics and functional requirements, Darkin Architects aims to create an extension that not only meets the immediate needs of the homeowners but also maximizes the potential of the existing space.

The Darkin Architects design team brings their expertise and innovative prowess to the fore in this visionary project. With a deep understanding of architectural design principles and a knack for transforming spaces, the architects are set to breathe new life into this home. By blending architectural finesse with a creative edge, Darkin Architects is on a mission to redefine the way the homeowners experience their living environment.

The project on Lon Mafon is anchored in a set of quality objectives that reflect the core values of Darkin Architects:

Maximize the View: We have designed an extension that strategically positions windows and openings to capture the panoramic beauty of Swansea. Each frame becomes a living painting that adds to the aesthetic appeal of the home.

Wow Factor: A common client request, Darkin Architects understands the importance of creating an impactful first impression. This Swansea home is infused with a "wow factor" that resonates from the exterior to the interior. This translates into awe-inspiring architectural elements and design features that will leave a lasting impression on anyone who experiences the space.

Abundance of Glazing: To bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, we have incorporated an abundance of glazing. Large windows and glass doors not only flood the interior with natural light but also provide unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape. This has been carefully balanced with opportunities to shade such as roof overhangs in order to prevent over heating from solar gain.

Optimizing Garden Space: By thoughtfully designing the extension to complement the garden layout, Darkin Architects is ensuring that the exterior environment becomes an extension of the interior living experience.

While aesthetics play a pivotal role in Darkin Architects' design philosophy, functionality and practicality are equally prioritised. This design seamlessly integrates the homeowners' needs, as expressed in the statement of need.
