Our client wanted a full width single storey kitchen extension in order to upgrade the arrangement of this stunning double-fronted period property and channel light into the heart of the building and social spaces.
The aim was to create an open plan, yet flexible living space to accommodate entertaining, and the daily needs of the family. This was achieved through the creation of a large open plan Kitchen (by Higham Furniture – www.higham.co.uk) with Dining and Sitting area. The ‘Adult’ Reception Room at the front of the property can be shut off from the rest of the space through the use of large sliding doors. A separate Play Room for the kids was created off the hall.
The First and Second floor were also refurbished and the layouts enhanced, with an additional en-suite to one of the bedrooms. This not only added financial value to the property but also created a guest suite for family staying the night.
The main design features incorporated into the ground floor kitchen extension were the large Crittall window and set of terrace doors by Bespoke Glazing Design Ltd. (www.bespokeglazingdesign.co.uk) These stretch across the whole of the rear façade. 3 large skylights also flood the living space with light.
London stock bricks were used in order to remain in keeping with the vernacular architecture. The yellow brick served as a soft base colour for the strong lines of the black crittall profiles and the riveted zinc parapet by Rheinzink (www.rheinzink.co.uk).
