The project was driven by the desire to create an open plan kitchen, dining living area and improve access to the rear south facing garden.  The extension is designed as a contemporary addition with large areas of glazing to provide strong connections with the garden and maximise natural daylighting.  Timber sun shading prevents summer overheating.

The existing rear extension was demolished to make way for a new dining/garden room with raised terrace and 'easy' steps into the garden.  The rear of the garage was converted to provide a ground floor study or additional bedroom.
