Internal walls were demolished to form the enlarged kitchen and dining space with a separate utility and storage area. A conservatory roof light was introduced to create a light airy interior. Kitchen cupboards and fitments were designed to harmonise with the other areas of the house. As an additional part of the commission the cellar of the house was  excavated to create a large deep space which was then transformed into personal gym. Careful negotiations with English Heritage and the local authority were required to achieve consent for these alterations. ←previous   next→
