Railway cottage extension
This lovely railway cottage in Acton, had a tired kitchen and lacked an entertaining space which the clients desperately needed.
They approached us to create a side return extension at the rear, incorporating a beautiful new kitchen and dining space with large, sliding bi-fold doors opening on to their landscaped garden. The roof included a huge bespoke window to flood the new space and the existing reception room with light.
We were able to incorporate a green roof to provide greenery and to allow the cat access – we fitted the cat flap on the first floor to solve the common problem of cat flaps and full width doors. A new ground floor WC was cleverly tucked under the stairs.
We finalised the transformation by redesigning the clients’ studies, with bespoke joinery and the reintroduction of an open fireplace (previously hidden behind melamine cupboards). We selected finishes including a micro cement floor inside and out and organised the design and fit of a lovely, bespoke DeVOL kitchen.
