"...it was clear that Andrew understood our needs for the space and could visualise a practical solution"
Gillian Robertson, client
The original linear flat has been extended and re-focused, replacing the B Listed conservatory with a new kitchen and dining space - the original octagonal stone plinth being retained and the fenestration pattern repeated. Glazing above and below the new windows is substituted with insulated glass spandrel panels to achieve current thermal requirements. Slender stainless steel tie rods allow the space to open up to the underside of the lead roof.
Kitchen units in American cherry, stainless steel and Cumbrian green slate integrate windows and storage. Double glazed units with integral blinds provide solar-control and privacy whilst avoiding the problems caused by grease and dust in kitchen areas.
