The scheme was carefully designed and thought out by the architects to ensure that the definition of ‘new and old’ was clear but the spaces felt as one. When you step into the new oak and glass extension, you feel as if you are stepping outside whilst simultaneously still being in the kitchen.
This continuity of space was helped largely by the use of timber in the extension, ensuring the oak battens of the extension were exposed and visible as part of the interior design.
Other interior surfaces were matched to the oak battens to tie the materiality of the space together.
Other natural materials within the extension help the space maintain its lightweight and open environment. The oak of the glass extension is paired with natural slate and larch to ensure that the interior space is open, bright and full of light.
The oak and glass wall overlooks the well-maintained gardens to the side of the property and create a space to sit and relax within the property. As well as a light filled space to circulate, the timber and glass extension area is a brilliant seating area to spend time throughout the day. The natural timber structure is inviting, enhancing warmth and comfort in a space that could otherwise be seen as cold.
