There is old saying that ‘dogs often resemble their owners’, well this could possibly be said about houses too. In this case Jonny and Val were keen to open up their small dark existing kitchen extension into a light modern informal space for cooking and dining as well as a place for the family to hang out. The result was a bright, open, relaxed and warm family room, a space that we hope they don’t mind us saying is not unlike the owners!
This open plan kitchen design is both modern and in keeping with the original style of it's host property. Folding sliding doors allow both wings to be opened onto the garden entirely whilst filling the rooms with light. The large skylight situated within the roof of the orangery also provides more natural light giving the entire structure an open, calm atmosphere.

Architect Gregory Phillips created an airy addition for a Victorian just outside London, which opens out onto a decidedly nontraditional English garden—a large lawn bordered by exotic palms, bamboos, ferns, and other flamboyant foliage.
