Side extension: £100,000
This four-month-long project in a mid-terrace house in Hydethorpe Road, Balham, took place last August and extended the original 2,785 sq ft kitchen by 150 sq ft into 2,940 sq ft of kitchen and dining space by utilising the redundant side return.
Despite it being north facing, light floods into the kitchen from the large frameless skylights and glass curtain walling and sliding doors. By demolishing part of the internal masonry, the designers have cleverly hidden various facilities. The project cost £100,000 to design, build and fit, including a Shaker kitchen and marble worktops. The architects were dRAW, Atlas Structures the structural engineers and Renovations TM the contractor.
