This beautiful stone house had undergone a number of changes and extension in its long past. The result was that Ground floor rooms were isolated from each other and did not provide a space to bring the family together. We used a very small and underused rear yard to create and connect a study, kitchen and breakfast area. A large glazed roof brings a generous amount of daylight into the space with views in and out and through the house. The site was extremely small so the works needed to be planned carefully and co-ordinated with the contractor. For us the project demonstrates how a small intervention on a modest budget can transform the flow and relationships of spaces throughout a property.
