Studio Gennaio reconfigured the ground floor of a small cottage to provide more appropriate kitchen and living space for a growing family.
The kitchen was relocated, with a new extension providing generous dining space with snug, and a separate, much-needed boot room.
Opening up the lounge provides a playroom/games room, with a lightwell providing additional natural light into the darkest part of the house. The form of the extension gives views over the garden, maximising the natural light into this space and providing a direct line of sight from the kitchen to the dining room. It also minimises impact into the garden, allowing plenty of space for outdoor recreation.
