A stunning open-plan kitchen and living space


The Reilly family wanted to create a kitchen, utility, dining and living space for their growing family. Being located in a conservation area called for a design that preserved the integrity of their Victorian property. They required an extension which would bring natural light into their home, and would flow into their outdoor space.



The new design entailed converting the existing garage and extending the rear of the house to create additional living space. After stripping out and removing the rear walls, we built a new chimney stack to house a wood burner. The ceiling within the converted garage area was raised, vaulted, and fitted with electric opening roof windows. The reclaimed brick extension which seamlessly linked the converted space to the house was fitted with aluminium french doors and fixed full height feature windows.

We installed a rolled lead roof with welded outlets, a rubber roofing system, and a reclaimed slate roof across the different sections of the property. A drainage system was formed for the utility, along with further plumbing and electrical works for the new space. A bespoke Hampton Shaker-style kitchen was designed, manufactured and installed to complement the period of the property. Lighting, flooring, and interior decoration added the finishing touches to the transformation.


We have built a seamless, open-plan space that has provided the Reilly family with the large social and entertainment area they desired. Central to the rear elevation is full-height glazing, which allows light to flood the new area, and provide a connection to the garden. The feature chimney breast and log burner ensure the space can be snug all year-round. The Victorian house now has an elegant and practical addition which makes the home fit for 21st Century family living.
