Light and Space
The new kitchen and dining room will utilise the mono pitch roofs to create a light and spacious interior. We propose to expose the structure and contrast the black timber with naturally treated timber on the soffit. A roof light over the dining room will make the dining room more pleasant but will also help light the existing lounge.
The proposed extension has developed as a coherent sculptural form that works with the existing house and the neighbouring property. Three different orientated mono-pitch roofs work together and provide visual interest while being practical in terms of drainage.
There are large opening doors to the dining room and double doors from the kitchen. A side window to the kitchen is maintained from the existing elevation.
