"I love the changes Love Architecture have made to my property. Its made a huge difference in our lives…"
The house had a small kitchen, and a large high-walled courtyard to the rear which received little direct light.
The clients have a young family, and wished to create spaces for safe play which could be overlooked from a larger kitchen, as well as maximising use of the limited garden for alfresco dining.

Before and after:
The kitchen extension has a curved sliding-folding door opening onto a paved dining and play area. The curved wall produces an unusual roof form, and this was exploited to add height.
New garden pond and landscaping was also introduced.
The widest end of the courtyard was enclosed in a new envelope of structural oak and glass in a style echoing barns, and in keeping with the semi industrial history of the building.
