This project is for a side return extension to a semi-dethatched house in Muswell Hill.
This project is for a side return extension to a semi-dethatched house in Muswell Hill. The client’s brief was to provide a bright and spacious kitchen/living with dining and break out area, as well as generous larder for storage.
The layout has been designed to enhance the provision of natural light inside the space and the visual connection with the generous rear garden.
The geometry of the roof, divided in two pitched sections culminating with skylights, reflects the internal hierarchy. One roof covers the kitchen, whereas the other is located above the living/dining area.
The framed skylights are centred with the two spaces providing plenty of light from above.
A sliding patio door opens the view toward the rear garden, whereas another glazed door gives access to the side alley from the kitchen. A square bay window with integrated seating provides the perfect chill out spot with view to the garden. The island kitchen is located along the side portion of the extension and a rectangular fixed window frames the outside view.
The pantry is neatly hidden behind the grey and blue glass kitchen. The grey tall units feature a concrete effect that matches the floor, and is continuous throughout the internal and external space, enhancing the continuity. The oak details, combined with the light grey textures and white walls, give a Scandinavian feel to the interior.
Externally, the two volumes are entirely cladded in standing seam. The dark colour of zinc contrasts with the exposed red brick matching the existing house.
