Smoke Lane

Brief

This 1960's split level house had been previously extended to the rear to provide a dining area, but this area of the house was spilt into a number of smallish rooms with poor connections between.

Response

We removed the flat roof over the rear extension and the main pitched roof over the kitchen area. Internal walls between the existing kitchen and dining areas were removed and the space created was unified under a new roof incorporating roof-lights. The window area was increased and new patio doors lead onto the west-facing terrace. A pair of tall oak doors open to reveal internal views of the new space and of the interesting timber staircase.
