Looks very good. I suspect it would be worth considering taking the facade down and rebuilding it rather than try to alter what is already there in order to achieve that.

I was wondering if brick slips might work. They would have to be specials but surely cheaper and easier than a total facade rebuild?

Good point. Much easier to do if it's a modern cavity extension, which I presume it is - no need to worry about breathability.

Get as mentioned before a pair of side hung wooden garage doors and cover the bricks with brick slips. There are lots of brick slips around should not be too hard to get a good match.
