A 20th century family home featured a living area that worked adequately for the everyday, but was restrictive for large gatherings. The property had a spacious garden, but it felt distant from the living area. Our clients wanted to rethink their living area and create a flexible space that would both welcome large get-togethers and cultivate quiet days for two. They also loved their garden and therefore wanted to be able enjoy it even when the weather didn’t allow.
In collaboration with our client, we developed a design that created a simple 2.25m deep, full-width rear extension for the living area. This enabled us to work within Permitted Development legislation; meaning Planning Permission was not required.
A bespoke kitchen, careful attention to lighting, and expansive high performance slim frame doors to the garden were the essential tools to create a bright, comfortable and adaptable space, where cooking, eating and living areas are distinct but linked, making it easy to cook and host at the same time. While the actual extension is modest, the strong connection to the garden and the considered details of space and light make for a dramatic transformation.
