This stylish timber clad pavilion addition to a Victorian Villa in a sensitive conservation area compliments the grandiose scale and proportions of the existing house. It connects the principal living rooms with the new open plan kitchen/dining/living extension area with trapezoidal roof light, whilst improving the light and spacial flow throughout the ground floor.
The design focuses on achieving a spatial balance between the large volumes of the living room, the kitchen, and the extension. The introduction of two generous steps at the pinch point connection between the kitchen & living rooms resolves differing floor levels. Ensuring the scale & volume of the extension is proportionate to the ground floor reception rooms, achieving a poetic spatial flow.
The aim was also to optimise daylight, sunlight, & space relationships between the front and rear of the house. A new glass doorway connection was created between kitchen and hallway bringing sunlight into the heart of the house. A new WC and utility were important functional additions. A large sliding wall between the living and kitchen/dining rooms, together with new enlarged folding doors between the principal reception rooms provide enhanced space flexibility.
The extension creates a protected sun terrace, perfect for ‘al fresco’ dining for the family. Large sliding doors open to the South facing garden and terrace, to maximise daylight and garden connections. Sliding external shutters provide needed solar protection. Sustainable features include warm water underfloor heating, high spec thermally broken glazing, LED lighting, solar shading & timber cladding.
