We were commissioned to transform a typical developer house into a bespoke, design-led home, extending our clients’ property to add additional living space and bedrooms.
Our main concern when designing this project was increasing the depth of the floorplate left areas of the house without natural light, risking the inner spaces of the home becoming too dark. To overcome the light issue, we added two side extensions with large glazed roof lights, acting as a light tunnel to draw and funnel natural light into the inner floor plate. The result was an open and light living space, despite the room being north facing.
We decided to sink the kitchen units into the light tunnel opening, flooding the kitchen area with natural light and subsequently allowing for a larger open space.
