family house extension

The owner of this Birmingham house approached us after securing permission for a rear extension to his house. The large extension was meant to host a large open plan Lounge/kitchen/dining area which would open to the back yard.

An island kitchen

They had one design idea which they were very keen to incorporate into the design; a sunken, 1970’s style lounge area.
Our solution:
We located the kitchen on the right side of the entrance door with floor to ceiling cabinets along the entire length of the wall and a large island parallel to it with a sink, a large hob and a comfortable bar style breakfast bar.
The dining table was placed in parallel to the large folding doors leading to the back yard.

A sunken lounge

On the left of the entrance door we located the sunken lounge seating area and designed a low furniture piece that functions both as the back of the lounge and as a space divider.
We place a large square skylight above the lounge to brings plenty of natural light in addition to the light coming from the garden doors.
