"Our client was looking for an extension that was a combination of traditional and modern styles. They wanted their new space to contain a functional kitchen area, as well as some clever storage solutions. "

Project details

In this property a divided and illogical layout was redesigned and extended in order to create a central social hub where all the family could enjoy hanging out.

Solution

I decided to remove nearly all the walls at the rear of the house, in order to create an open plan dining, kitchen, and seating area. Lining the walls around the seating area I added in some storage, that was tucked away out of sight. Two skylights were in place in this open plan room, along with floor to ceiling glass doors facing out towards the garden, to allow for the maximum amount of natural light filling the extension.
