Light play - Kingston

A simple palette of materials has been selected to extend out our home and create a fantastic living space open to the garden.

Key to the design was to provide a spacious, flexible living space that opened up to the garden. The form of the build was tested through a number of models and sketches. A full width 4.5m roof light slot separates the existing house to the new element of the extension, it's width allowing light to the depth of the room and it's narrow depth preventing direct sun from overheating the space.

The glass doors wrap around the corner and up beyond the ceiling to hide the roller blinds when they aren't in use. The glass slides back into the pocket in the wall allowing the dining table to move outside.

Careful detailing around the fireplace create a cosy space, with hidden LED light strips washing down behind the shelving and the low level gold pendant glowing at night. The three pendants to the dining area provide a focus along with the niche to the wall. A simple palette of the white oak herringbone, dark grey and white are articulated by changing light through out the day and seasons. Completed projects photos to follow.
