Creating an open plan space is an important aspect of any family home, with defined zones for the Kitchen, Dining and Family areas improving the enjoyment of the space and how it can be used. Maximising daylight and creating access to the garden can also have a positive impact on the home.
This modern extension provides this relatively new build home with a large open plan space, with large bi-fold doors opening out to a new decked terrace and landscaped garden. The extension combines the original Kitchen and Dining Room, doubling the footprint of the existing space.
Materials were chosen to contrast with the existing house, with dark timber and brick cladding complimenting the new dark grey windows and doors.
The design was kept simple, with clean lines, hidden gutters and rectangular shape extending across the width of the original house.
