Materials

  1. Wherever possible the materials used on the extension should match, or complement those of the existing building. A mixture of too many materials, or the introduction of alien materials, make the extension appear unrelated and thus out of place.
  2. If an extension involves the continuation of an existing wall in the same plane then there should be maximum compatibility between old and new in terms of colour and texture of materials
