Once a school, then a house, now made into a modern family home. The proportions of the existing house were generous and formed the starting point for the new design. The original main living room flows into the new dining space and the new ceiling steps down into the kitchen area to reflect the split section of the original house.
The kitchen is designed as a focal point of the new space- having key views to the garden (whilst washing up!). It is designed to be ergonomic and to promote a sociable family life. The old kitchen space is made into a homework area for the kids . New rooflights put light back into the original living room. A series of mesh boxes and screens articulate the back of the structure- the hope is these will form a framework for ivy to cover- one hides the rainwater tank.
