Pre cast concrete panels are used to denote the individual aspects of the project. A Japanese inspired courtyard, central to the design ensures the existing dining room maintains high levels of natural daylight whilst increasing the connection between the existing kitchen and the external landscape.
The main driver is to open up the existing kitchen to the rest of the house by creating a new ‘lightweight’ pavilion to the front of the property. The addition of a courtyard maximises light in the space and creates multiple views out whilst maintaining much needed privacy from the street.
"The project harmonises the material palette of the existing property and applies a contemporary language to the new building form."Gavin Watts - Principal Architect, Define
