The design

A single-storey kitchen-diner extension to a detached house

The budget


The brief

To create a useable family kitchen/dining/living space within an unusually shaped property

The rear of the house before the extension

Paul Schofield of design specialist Apropos explains how the brief was achieved:

‘The owner wanted a light, airy open-plan kitchen-diner and family living space. We designed an orangery to suit both the original style of the the L-shaped house and the previous extension.

‘The new space has bi-fold doors to bring the outside in, plus a rooflight to add height and light to the kitchen area. The result is a highly functional, modern living space, perfect for a growing family to live and entertain in.’
