Micro Project to extend the existing kitchen of a house from 2.7m in width to 3.9m, a 1.2m wide extension in total - Small project with Big Impact.
The brief also included to provide a Small Utility Room, Cloak Room with WC and the Client's particular favourite space - A New Pantry!
The introduction of a large sliding door and the remodelling of steps to a tiered garden gives the impression of the kitchen being much larger and extending into the garden.
The doors form a proscenium from the Garden, for the Kitchen as the Theatre, where everything is happening!
This project has been a real joy to have delivered and to visit now.
'We've done a few building projects before, but this was the first time we'd used an architect, so we were a bit apprehensive. However, Dennis managed to develop a vision for the extension and remodelling of part of our house that we would never have dreamt up without him. He took our basic ideas and practical requirements and fitted everything we wanted into a beautiful, clean, open space that unites our kitchen, dining room, utility room, cloakroom and garden seamlessly. Importantly for us, it has enhanced our 1937 house without destroying the integrity of the original design that we love. His plans were extremely detailed, so everyone knew what was expected, and he visited regularly to make sure the project was progressing as planned, and to solve any issues that arose. He dealt sensitively with the local authority building department in order to achieve the desired look, whilst conforming fully with all building regulations. We are thrilled with the result.'
