The initial brief was to remove a chimney breast in the rear of a terraced house in Charlton, South East London, to create a newly designed kitchen which connected better with the outside space and its vast garden.
A patch of land flanked by the house and a three storey office block was later incorporated into the design to increase the kitchen area whilst increasing the connection between the garden and the kitchen through to the two reception rooms at the front of the house. A section of glass roof is located closer to the original opening to the rear reception to draw in natural light. An aluminium framed glazed door pivots to allow the internal and external sociable spaces to connect, whilst a large expanse of fixed glazing allows views and light from the functional area in the kitchen.
The project is due for completion later this year.
