Simon and his family had two requirements
A larger kitchen, eating and family space
A space open to the garden
“Like most households, the kitchen and dining rooms were just used as rooms of function. We cooked in the kitchen and we occasionally ate in the dining room. We had previously knocked through to make a kitchen/diner, but still this would be a wasted space.
An extension to our family led us to consider an extension to the home. We wanted to create a family environment. One where the space could be used, and the outside could be brought in.”
