Extension to a large country house to provide a sunroom and improve the internal layout of the kitchen.


Taking down the external wall across the full width of the kitchen the extension creates a large kitchen-family-dining room. Bifold doors, with a glazed gable above, open out to to the paved terrace outdoor space.


High quality triple glazed windows and doors together with a double insulated timber frame were specified to reduce heat loss.  An opening glazed roof light helps to bring daylight deep inside the plan to the kitchen area. Underfloor heating with a tiled floor finish throughout pulls the kitchen and sunroom into one room. Natural slate roofing and painted render help visually tie the extension to the existing house.
