Town House Extension, Winchester
This complete refurbishment and contemporary house extension, in Winchester Hampshire, took place over eight months. In redesigning the existing layout and extending the home at the rear, the building now provides the client with a new open-plan living space in the centre of the home. The double height contemporary kitchen extension, with its glazed gable end, allows light to enter the full depth of the space whilst providing views into the landscaped garden beyond.
A frameless glazed corner opening on the opposite elevation provides access onto the decking that surrounds the rear elevation. Sliding doors offer the opportunity to open the full extent of the house to the garden, creating an expansive space for entertaining and family living. Internally, exposed timber trusses combine with steel ties and sit above the exposed brickwork walls to create a contemporary finish, complementing the materials of the bespoke kitchen. Throughout the house existing rooms have been reworked to improve the flow of the house, and contemporary and traditional finishes have been mixed, resulting in a series of comfortable spaces suitable for modern family living.
