internal shelving design hides the kitchen work surfaces but maintains the connection to the living room. The living room is set at the lower garden level and helps define this zone.
Although the extension is north facing light is encouraged by way of large sliding screens and a roof window above the circulation space.
The dining area remains in the original house with light flooding in through an additional roof window. New timber flooring throughout the ground floor

New bespoke oak bookshelf designed with different heights of shelves so as not to limit what can be displayed. The new slot window brings a shaft of south light into the room.
Nib walls in the existing kitchen diner were removed and we redesigned the layout making much better use of the space. The new kitchen, supplied by Development Direct looks fantastic.
The work top wraps up the side, over and steps down to form the family breakfast bar. I love the floating tall units to the back wall. These have been semi-recessed into the wall.
The living room was extended to create an area for dining. Two large sliding doors and a slot window to the south were added along with a new wood burner.
We decided to use a dimly lit bedroom to the north of the house to locate the new stairs to the attic bedrooms. The stairs were designed so that there was enough space behind for a new large ensuite shower room and utility. The existing wall to the bedroom was partially removed so that there is now no evidence of the room ever being there in the first place.
