A careful reworking at the rear of a classic Victorian semi-detached house, set within the Kew Gardens Conservation Area, provided improved and additional kitchen, dining and study spaces with a better connection to the wonderful sun filled garden. To do this we needed to demolish an ageing conservatory attached to the side of the house that had been built some years prior by the previous owners. In its place we created a generous dining and study area complete with a large glass roof, which is supported on a series of fine steel T- beams. Large minimally-framed glass doors disappear into wall pockets, opening up the space to the leafy rear garden.

The new side extension accommodates a new bespoke kitchen, which has been artfully crafted using a handsome combination of walnut cabinets with stainless steel and marble worktops. An oriel window within this space provides a place to sit for casual conversation and frames the view from the kitchen to the green of the garden beyond.
