A contemporary extension | Shrivenham, Oxfordshire
The house already has a rear extension, but it has been planned quite badly. The view from the kitchen window is of the neighbours extension and the access to the rear garden is rather tortured – out through the side, up steps etc.
Our brief was loose – what can you do with this!
By moving the cloakroom we have allowed the kitchen to flow from the dining area towards the garden, ending with a glazed screen that opens upwards and outwards. The amount of natural light is increased substantially, views of the rear garden are revealed and access to the garden is easy.
