Walford Road



The owners of this three-storey Victorian mid-terrace asked us to expand and update their home to meet the needs of modern family life. To create an open-plan kitchen/dining room extension that opened into the courtyard garden, we expanded into the side return and fitted a pitched skylight, spanning the length of the outrigger and set against an exposed brick wall, flooding the dining area beneath with natural light.

A bench running along the wall, fitted with low cupboards, created both seating and storage, while a large, projecting picture window lined in oiled prime oak maximised the garden view and provided both an extra window seat and a much-needed chill-out space for the cat.
