We came to a very simple solution for this house; to remove the old offshoot occupying most of the garden and then open up the kitchen and dining space to the freshly revealed garden. Of course there was more to it. We had to shoehorn in a utility room, shower room and first floor study. The cedar clad box-like extension contrasts with the main house but is already beginning to quieten and weather down. A few, select, large windows and bi-folding doors create great connections to the garden, flooding the indoors with light.
