Extensions

Extensions can the answer to creating more space. They can be an opportunity to adapt a house and create, what is often missing from older houses – a large living room kitchen. The kitchen has developed from a room where food was prepared to become a space of a multitude of functions. The modern kitchen includes sofas, television, dining and of course cooking. It is a space that is the hub of family living. For it to function with this multitude of functions it needs size to work well – the larger the better. With an existing house forming this type of space is often a combination of extension combined with part of existing floor area. The result can be very effective. For some clients the combination of modern glass enclosed space will add a contemporary style to an historic house that works well. An extension in an historic style will be the choice for others. The key to a successful design is the collaboration with our clients that reflects their taste.
