Replacement of the existing lean-to utility room with new sitting and breakfasting areas

The existing lean-to utilitarian addition to a Victorian mansion was replaced by a sitting and breakfasting space.

The extension sits to the side of the building, facing both the front and rear gardens. Constructed of timber framed, powder-coated aluminium window frames, a lead roof and dark render. The new and old elements are separated by a glazed link.

Internally the two spaces are created, a south-facing, timber-lined 'snug' with a vaulted ceiling for sitting; and a more open feeling, glazed breakfast space.
