ORANGERY KITCHEN EXTENSION WITH SEPARATE LIVING AREA
Our initial enquiry was to design a small hardwood orangery as a quiet space to relax.
During our design discussions, it was mentioned by our client that they also wanted to extend the kitchen but was concerned about how the two separate buildings would look when built. We suggested using a mixture of brick and timber to ensure the new extension looked as if it was built with the house.
Our final design idea was to create a link between the kitchen extension and orangery with the central link big enough for breakfast or coffee.
Our customer required a full turnkey project with one company to carry out the whole project from start to finish – this had to include planning permission and building regulations. We have all these services available in house, so the request was not an issue for us.
With projects of this nature, it should be remembered once the old kitchen is removed to start the project you are without a kitchen for some considerable time, which to say the least is inconvenient.
It is essential that your plans for a new kitchen start early in the process to cause as least disruption as possible. By doing the kitchen design work early there was a seamless transition with a new kitchen ready to be installed as soon as the new extension is complete to minimise disruption to family life. We worked closely with the chosen kitchen installer to ensure a minimum of delay.
