Bradley Van Der Straeten Architects have recently completed a refurbishment and extension of a family home in Leytonstone, London.
The client wanted a living space for a growing family. So, the main priorities were making sure they had a very strong link with the garden. As well as enough space for a large dining table.
The team radically transformed the existing long narrow kitchen by partially extending it out to the side to create a new dining space and widen views onto the garden.
The architects used a rich palette of color and materials throughout the home that includes a yellow lounge, a terrazzo showroom, and a family bathroom with palm print wallpaper.
As the architects say, the most challenging part was creating the additional space required, without extending the property too much and blowing the budget. To achieve this, they only extended it partly to the side.
This created enough space for a large dining table, whilst also maintaining light into the existing living areas of the house and not blowing the budget.
