Extension and refurbishment of a detached Victorian house

The three-bedroom house in a market town near London had been refurbished ten years earlier but needed to be adapted to cater for the change of lifestyle of the couple with one toddler and a baby. It lacked a good connection to the rear garden, had a separate kitchen and only one bathroom.

The new extension creates an open plan kitchen and dining area with a large glazed opening framing the garden view. The simple canopy clad in zinc and western red cedar blurs the boundary between interior and exterior. The south east facing external patio transforms into an extension of the living space when the doors are fully opened.

The new L- shaped kitchen area designed for two passionate cooks is defined as a more private zone by a peninsula and a linear top-lit circulation route with built-in cupboards.

A new ground floor toilet is secretly tucked behind full-height kitchen units. A frameless glass door separates the TV and sitting areas in the front of the house from the activities in a busy family kitchen. One of the fireplaces is turned into an AV hub with built in shelving and TV unit.

The project also includes the addition of a sensitively designed flat roof dormer to accommodate a shower room to the loft bedroom and refurbishment of the main bathroom.
