Design Concept: Penthouse extension
with timber and glass
Extend your living space with the addition of an extra storey- the Penthouse extension
When it comes to designing living space HUF HAUS are raising the roof!
A roof storey extension in our individual timber frame construction, provides an additional living space that can be planned considerately, flexibly and swiftly.
HUF HAUS architects and experienced structural engineers collaborate to examine the condition, structure and materials of the existing building to ensure smooth construction process.
As illustrated by these design concept images, the Penthouse addition is universal design and not restricted to existing HUF HAUS timber and glass architecture. With local permissions granted HUF HAUS can start planning and designing your bespoke home, as individual to your needs as every HUF HAUS Home project. Depending on size and dimensions, the extension is rainproof in a few days. As a practical plus, the roof storey extension is secured to the building without disturbing tenants below who can continue through the construction phase without disruption.
Apartments with loft character
Extra living space, especially in cities, is uncommon and prices are continually rising. The spacious Penthouse extension is an economically sensible investment, with the search for land and the associated costs eliminated.
In this example, the HUF extension creates additional living space of over 210 square metres. The roof storey extension promises freedom for generous floor plans and floor-to-ceiling glass elements that provide abundant natural daylight to the home.
Large sliding doors lead the future residents to the adjoining balconies – where unhindered views over rooftops and the city can be enjoyed from your own sky terrace.
The typical open character of a HUF house can easily be transferred to the living concept of a roof extension; the combination of the existing build and the extension is the focal point of the planning and the design- where the Sky is the Limit!
An economically sensible investment
