The house had been extended before, but it still didn’t have the feeling of natural light or seamless movement the owners were looking for, so we worked on giving them an open-plan kitchen/dining area, using a full-width extension, with a separate utility room and downstairs WC.
The large, specially designed kitchen is now the focal room of the house where the family comes together and enjoys socialising with friends over a delicious home-cooked meal. A beautiful integrated pantry is the fulfilment of a dream for this family that loves food and entertaining.
The generous utility/boot room now provides ample space for appliances and other items, including a built-in wine storage area, while there’s a practical understanding of how the family’s everyday routine works in how the rooms are laid out.
Generous bi-fold doors ensure the space will continue to work well during warm summer evenings for outdoor dining, while the new crittal-style glazed double doors connecting to the entrance hall provide views right through the house from the front door to the garden.
