The original house plan was an L-shape configuration containing a small kitchen at the rear with living and dining rooms at the front and middle of the house respectively.
Our client’s brief was to utilise the under-used space along the side of the rear garden, enlarge the kitchen and improve the link between the garden and the house. To achieve these objectives, we created an open-plan dining and kitchen area with bi-fold doors and sloped rooflights along the side wall to create a sense of volume and to maximise the natural light. The reconfiguration of the layout also allowed for the inclusion of a much need downstairs cloakroom.
Work on site is currently ongoing and due for completion in the first quarter of 2023
The original dwelling was built in the 1950s and has been suffering from an outdated layout and tired features. Our proposal to transform the property involved a complete overhaul of the internal layout so that it could link harmoniously with a new 200 sqm extension.
The key features include a large open plan kitchen and dining space, a split ground floor level and a double height entrance hall with feature stairs. The ground floor layout has been organised into a flowing series of spaces with a clear demarcation of shared and private areas. The design style is a contemporary vernacular style with crisp off render, feature timber cladding and slate tiles, all combining to create a sensitive material palette that relates to its location.
The project is due for completion in early 2022.
